Spencer graduate works to assist village residents
By Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – Daniel Clark, a Spencer High School graduate and current state FFA vice president, is offering to help Spencer residents.
With the longtime village grocery store closed once again, Clark is offering a grocery delivery service to village residents during the COVID-19 outbreak.
“After hearing that we should all be doing our best to stay at home, I immediately thought of all the people who shouldn’t be going out, even for necessities,” Clark said. “After visiting the Spencer Village Hall, we talked about how we could make this public to all of Spencer for those who could use the service.”
The village used their Facebook page to get the word out about Clark’s services.
“I never expected to see over 175 shares of that one post and all of the positive texts and comments that came with it,” he added. “Now I get to wait and see who could use the help. Asking for help isn’t something that we tend to be very good at even if we could use it. Serving others is important to me and it’s something I believe we need now more than ever. “
On Mondays, at 9 a.m., Clark picks up grocery lists and takes them to Festival Foods in Marshfield. Clark asks that shopping lists are as precise as possible; you can use Festival Foods online shopping for assistance. His services require a check made out to Festival, signed and dated. The store cashier indicates the amount due on the receipt and Clark delivers the groceries to the person’s home.
If you are interested in his complimentary service, during the safer at home order, you can contact Daniel Clark at 715-741-2646.
“Through difficult times, everyone needs something to look forward to and put a smile on their face,” Clark said.
