ATOKA, Okla (KXII) - A Texoma non-profit is continuing its efforts to help hungry kids and senior citizens get food and essential items during the pandemic.

JAMM Transit is apart of INCA Community Services who are providing a care package service for those afraid to leave homes in Johnston, Atoka, Marshal and Murray Counties.

INCA provides a variety of services for nine counties in Southern Oklahoma, including connecting volunteering opportunities to people 55 and older with a nonprofit.

JAMM Transit, who provides public transportation started rolling out to people who are afraid of leaving their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

JAMM Operational Director Erica Pogue says kids in Tishomingo, Atoka and Connervile are eligible to get their school-provided meals straight to their door.

“If the school continues to provide distance learning, and they still need help with delivering those meals, then yes, we’ll continue to deliver meals,” said Pogue.

Anyone living in JAMM Transit’s area can call their office at 580-889-5193 if help is needed.

INCA-RSVP is still providing care packages to Atoka, Carter, Coal, Garvin, Johnston, Love, Marshall, Murray and Pontotoc Counties.
