Community Action Agency asks for help as refrigerated delivery truck needs repairs

Top Stories

BLOUNT COUNTY, Tenn. (WATE) — Community support is the key for nonprofit organizations like the Blount County Community Action Agency. Presently the agency has a problem with a troublesome truck whey depend on.

Two months ago, the back door to their old refrigerated delivery truck broke, so a cargo net is being used temporarily. Repair expenses keep the agency from getting the nearly 20-year-old vehicle fixed.

“Our delivery trucks conked through this. The door went right off. It is something that we use for picking up from Second Harvest weekly. So, it’s been a real struggle of being able to do the logistics of getting the food and making sure it’s getting out to the seniors.”

The Blount County CAA is asking for assistance in either repairing the truck or getting a replacement for it.
