I direct a program called Commodity Day which is a once per month delivery of a
box of nonperishable food and two pounds of cheese provide through SMCAA.
The boxes of food and cheese are often accompanied by fresh fruits and
vegetables and even masks and sanitizer during the COVID months. Not only has
SMCAA provided Commodity Day benefits, but they have helped with utility and
home repairs for our participants, most recently arranging for the repair of
plumbing for an elderly resident.
As a Cass County Commissioner, I am in a position to see how the residents of the
community are helped by SMCAA, and when I am called by pastors of local
churches or local leaders, I know I can count on SMCAA to help. Throughout the
almost 12 years of my service as Commissioner, I have advocated for SMCAA and
how willingly they have given assistance to those in need. It is my hope that
SMCAA will continue to be a valuable resource for our community
