A Team Effort Locally Provides Help for Texas

Eddystone is proud to stand alongside our neighboring municipalities for a good cause!

Councilman Rob Yannuzzi and Councilman Bill Stewart joined Rep. David M Delloso and Collingdale Mayor Felecia Coffee as part of a regional effort to provide supplies to residents of Texas affected by the recent storms. The project, organized by Collingdale Mayor Coffee, included the delivery of a pallet of water graciously donated by the Eddystone Walmart.

The group all worked together to help prepare the collected water for transportation to Texas. Thank you to all who assisted in this effort!

food drive

Food Drive Collection Event Saturday, March 6 in Broomall

Delaware County and the Department of Human Services, in conjunction with Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon, Senator Tim Kearney, Senator John Kane, Senator Amanda Cappelletti, State Rep. Jennifer O’Mara and State Rep. Chris Quinn, will be holding a contactless drive-thru food drive collection on Saturday, March 6, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Broomall Fire Company.

Suggested donations include: Canned vegetables, rice, flour, cereal, powdered/evaporated/boxed milk, oil, sugar, salt, peanut butter, deodorant, toothpaste, bar soap, and feminine hygiene products.

In addition, this is the first food drive in which we are specifically requesting specialized ethnic foods to assist Upper Darby pantries. Suggested ethnic foods include dry beans (black, pinto, kidney), flour (gram, semolina (sooji), whole wheat, maseca (tortilla flour), fufu, canned fish (sardines, tuna) and canned corn, okra, spinach, and meats.

Food insecurity impacts the Delaware County community, and the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened access to food. The County has significantly expanded its efforts to address food scarcity beyond the traditional annual holiday food drive held each December.

Since April of 2020, Delaware County has conducted or helped coordinate 13 food drives, including multiple holiday food drives held in December, and has worked with the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services, the Department of Emergency Services, and Pennsylvania National Guard to coordinate the collection and distribution of hundreds of thousands of meals and countless food items, personal hygiene products, and pet food.

Broomall Fire Company Food Drive
March 6 | 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
1 N. Malin Road, Broomall, PA 19008

Additional food resources for the community can be found here.

Delaware County’s Jan. 28 Update on COVID-19 Vaccine Efforts

Delaware County is administering the COVID-19 vaccine at the Delaware County Wellness Center in Yeadon and at the Aston Community Center. Vaccination is by appointment only.

People who live or work in Delaware County can pre-register for the COVID-19 vaccine by completing a form found on the Chester County Health Department’s COVID-19 website. Vaccines are free of charge and for people age 16 and older who live or work in Delaware County. The form can be found here: https://chesco.seamlessdocs.com/f/delcovac

Completion of the form registers a person’s interest in receiving the vaccine, and the information provided helps the Chester County Health Department to place each individual into the Phase 1A, 1B, 1C, and Phase 2 categories.

All individuals 65 and older, and individuals ages 16-64 with certain medical conditions, as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that increase the risk of severe illness from the virus, are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination under Phase 1A. A breakdown of the phases can be found here: https://chesco.org/4822/COVID19Vaccine

Delaware County has opened a COVID-19 Call Center to answer COVID-19 related questions including information on vaccines and testing. The COVID-19 Call Center will be open Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. In addition to responding to phone calls, the Center will also respond to emails.

Phone: (484) 276-2100
Email: Covid19Resources@co.delaware.pa.us

Vaccine Supply

Residents are reminded to please be patient as vaccine remains very limited. Vaccine supply has not increased for Pennsylvania. The state is still receiving the same limited supply as it was in the beginning of January. In addition, almost half of the vaccines received is being allocated for long-term care facilities which have experienced the largest number of COVID-19 cases and deaths.

The Chester County Health Department is processing the impact of the recent changes made by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, moving those over the age of 65 and those 16-64 with certain medical conditions into Phase 1A. This change adds over 94,000 eligible people age 65 and older and adds approximately 80,000 people age 16-64 with certain medical conditions to Phase 1A. Those in Phase 1A account for 40% of the population.
