BANGOR – Senior citizens are largely staying home due to concerns over COVID-19, and one cab driver in Belfast is stepping up to help seniors in Waldo County get the groceries they need.
“I’m not looking to get rich, I just want to help everybody out until we can finally get over this,” said cab driver Maurice Clark.
Clark, known to many as “Mo,” normally transports autistic students in Waldo County. He’s turned his attention to another group in need during the coronavirus pandemic, with schools closed across the state.
“I want to help the people of Waldo County out to get groceries, anything at a pharmacy they need, doctors appointments,” said Clark.
He is offering up his services to seniors and individuals at a high risk for coronavirus; making trips for essential goods, and charging just the cost of gas.
“I’ve had a lot of calls from elderly [people] wanting to know if I could pick up groceries, this or that, for them, ‘cause they don’t want to go out, go in the buildings and everything,” said Clark.
Those in need in Waldo County can reach out to Clark the night before they would like him to make a trip for them, giving him a grocery list and spending limit, and he says he will accommodate individual needs the best he can.
“I want everybody to get what they need, if there’s anything else B&J can do, just give us a call … and I’ll be more than happy to do everything that we can do to help you out in the Waldo County area,” Clark said.
