VAC is back -- a fundraising drive has brought in enough money to allow the Voluntary Action Center to resume Meals on Wheels service on Tuesday.

The ongoing budget stalemate in Springfield meant that state grant funds weren’t coming in; so VAC was forced to cut one day from its usual schedule.

But the Irving family launched a fundraising challenge; they offered to match any monies collected through a GoFundMe account, up to $17,250; over 60 donors contributed $34,160 – far in excess of the goal.

So VAC says they will resume Tuesday deliveries, and the extra funds will enable them to add more people who have been on their waiting list.
