FREE GROCERY DELIVERY NOW AVAILABLE
FOR LOGAN COUNTY ADULTS 60 AND OVER
United Way partners with RTC Services to help you limit trips and stay healthy
To help with challenges presented by the COVID-19 crisis, United Way and RTC Services have partnered on a new Grocery Delivery Service for Logan County's older adults. Residents 60 years and older can now call RTC (937-539-3351) for free grocery pick up and delivery. The service is available weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Here's how to get it set up.
1. Call 937-539-3351 to get into the system.
2. You'll then call a participating store to order and pay for your groceries via credit card.
3. RTC will pick up and deliver your order.
· Community Markets in Bellefontaine
· Fields IGA in West Mansfield
· Kroger in Bellefontaine
· Steve's Market in DeGraff
· Thoman's IGA in West Liberty
Of course, if you'd rather go to the store yourself, RTC can take you there. RTC is receiving $40,000 of your United Way donations this year to give seniors free rides to the store and medical appointments.
"Instead of giving the seniors a free ride to their food, now they'll be giving the food a free ride to the seniors," laughs Dave Bezusko, United Way Executive Director. "We salute the creativity of Tonya Reed, Russ Foust, and Tam Blakely for coming up with this solution to the Stay-at-Home order. It helps the population most vulnerable to COVID-19 so they don't have to go out and expose themselves to the virus just to get their groceries."

Ohio Updates Application Process for Energy Assistance Programs in response to COVID-19
The Ohio Development Services Agency (Development) and Bridges CAP are working to help keep Ohioans safe during this time of emergency. Recently, Governor Mike DeWine declared a state of emergency regarding COVID-19, and Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, M.D., MPH has issued orders to limit social interactions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Effective immediately, Ohioans who are enrolling in the Percentage of Income Payment Plan Plus (PIPP) for the first time, applying for Home Energy Assistance Winter Crisis Program, or have limited income, are no longer required to visit a local Energy Assistance Provider in order to complete an application. Please pick up a packet at the front door and return it with your documents to be completed. Appointments may be completed over the phone during the scheduled appointment time rather than face-to-face.
Ohioans can visit www.energyhelp.ohio.gov to start their application and upload the required documents prior to their appointment. If a you do not have access to the internet and/or cannot upload your documentation, the local Energy Assistance Provider can complete your application over the phone. For a list of required documentation or to schedule an appointment call, 937-404-9203.
“Working with our local providers, we have been providing Ohio families with the support they need to manage their energy bills, and now this support is even more important,” said Lydia Mihalik, Director of the Ohio Development Services Agency. “The online application, in a normal scenario, makes it easier to apply and reduces the length of an in-person appointment, but now it is providing a bridge to assistance during an incredibly difficult time.”
Development will also extend the Winter Crisis Program (WCP) until May 1, 2020 to align with the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio’s extended Winter Reconnect Order and the regular Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP) will be extended until June 1, 2020.
Development’s Interactive Voice Response phone lines will not be available, however Ohioans may continue to call (800) 282-0880 and select option 2, to be transferred to their local Energy Assistance Provider.
The Home Energy Assistance Winter Crisis Program helps income-eligible Ohioans pay their heating bills and can assist with fuel tank placement, fuel tank testing and furnace repair. Ohioans must have a gross income at or below 175% of the federal poverty guidelines to qualify for WCP and HEAP assistance. For a family of four the annual income must be at or below $45,062.50. Ohioans must have a gross income at or below 150% of the federal poverty guidelines to qualify for PIPP. For a family of four the annual income must be at or below $38,625.00.
Ohioans that have a regulated utility and have been issued a disconnect notice are eligible for a one-time WCP benefit if they have not already received a WCP or regular HEAP benefit.
For more information about the features of the Winter Crisis Program locally and what is needed to apply, contact Mitch Marshall at 937-404-9203. Additional information can also be found at www.energyhelp.ohio.gov or by calling (800) 282-0880.
