The Marion County Senior Activity and Wellness Center is seeking funds to replace a Meals on Wheels delivery truck totaled in an accident in mid-December.

The Mountaineer Echo reports truck was totaled in an accident on Dec. 16. Swerving to miss deer, the vehicle went off the road and rolled two or three times. The driver was injured but is expected to recover.

Senior Center officials say they are in need of funds to replace the truck, as well as to funds to cover basic operations. The Center has experienced a lack of fundraiser events and an increase of seniors in need of food.

Donations may be directed to Marion County Senior Activity and Wellness Center, P.O. Box 728, Flippin, AR 72634.

The Center is located at 5966 Arkansas Highway 202 East.
