MORRIS COUNTY, NJ -- Emergency kits, containing four shelf-stable meals and a first aid kit will be available to Denville and other Morris County seniors and adults with disabilities. Five hundred free emergency supply kits will be available for distribution on Nov 23. 

The distribution will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Mon Nov 23, at the Morris County Library, 30 East Hanover Ave., Whippany. Homebound residents can call 973-285-6848 to determine if a kit can be delivered. All Morris County residents who are 60 or over and adults with disabilities qualify.

“Being prepared is important in all emergencies, whether it’s a pandemic or a storm. Having shelf-stable meals is incredibly important. These meals can be a stopgap if someone is homebound or unable to go out for food,” said Christine Hellyer, division director of Morris County’s Office on Aging, Disabilities, and Community Programming, which is sponsoring the event.
