Representatives from NeedNexus took part in a meeting Thursday morning at the Griswald Center for Seniors in Worthington.
The meeting was designed to launch the city’s new S.A.L.T. program, which is designed to have the community work with local police and fire agencies to help promote health and safety for its senior citizens.
“We were able to explain how we could be a helpful service to the community and relayed our mission to keep work within the Worthington area,” Business Development Manager Julie Fuller said. “The seniors asked lots of questions about our screening process for our vendors. We assured our audience that we speak with each vendor directly through our screening process to identify their credentials.”
After the meeting, the seniors left with bags provided by NeedNexus and a goal to find Needs.

I’m not a big fan of moving.
Last Friday’s series finale of NBC’s “Friday Night Lights” ended up with Coach Eric Taylor and his wife, Tami , moving to Philadelphia for her new job as Dean of Admissions at Braemore University.
Although I thought it was commendable that Taylor left his job to follow his wife, moving can be expensive.
Which moving company do you hire? Are there last-second cleaning or repair items that need done before moving day?
If you find yourself in the Taylor family’s shoes, try http://www.NeedNexus.com
You can post a Need for free and we’ll find service providers to bid on your project.
It’s up to you to pick your favorite bid.
And just for trying out our service and posting a Need, we’ll give you a $5 Starbucks gift card.
It’s a winning combination any football coach would like.
You don't have to call around to get quotes, you can get the best combination of price and quality by just posting a Need on http://www.NeedNexus.com

(EDITOR’S NOTE: NeedNexus is committed to giving back to the community. Part of our efforts is to recognize the work of a non-profit organization each week in our blog. This week, we’re recognizing the Westerville Area Resource Ministry’s “Westerville Area Kids Lunch Club”)
Westerville resident Elsie Hunt has a regular lunch date with her four children and 100 others in the city.
Hunt and her children are among those who attend Westerville Area Resource Ministry’s “Westerville Area Kids Lunch Club” each weekday through the summer at Ridgewood Park.
Staff members and volunteers serve lunches each day at 11:45 a.m. to all who attend and organize educational and recreational activities after the meal.
“They have been wonderful,” Hunt said. “They provide food and activities for my children and promote getting along. I also get to meet new people.”
WARM Project Coordinator Deb Wallace said the program looks to expand to more sites through the area next year.
"This program has a nice neighborhood feel to it,” she said. “The parents stick around with their kids. This has been meaningful to the families.”
The games and educational activities have been a hit with participants.
“A lot of these kids usually play video games during the summer,” said Jason Longanbach, a Lewis Center volunteer who helps organize the activities. "It's nice to see them break a sweat and be active."
To volunteer for the program, call Wallace at 614-899-0196.

Over the past few days, we’ve posted a variety of ways to connect with us and ways you can get involved with how we're connecting with the community.
Here’s a roundup.
We currently have two separate drawings.
One drawing is a weekly contest in which we give a $50 VISA gift card to the highest value qualified need posted that week. The other drawing is a monthly
contest that involves all buyers who posted a qualified need within that month. We aill pick one person at random who will also win a $50 VISA gift card.
We also have smaller incentive-based ways the community can continue to get involved with NeedNexus. If you register with us, we’ll pay $1 for each need you
refer to our web site. In addition to that, we have a fund-raising program where we pay non-profits $3 for each need they refer to us.
Furthermore, we are giving away a $25 VISA gift card at random each month to a social media follower on our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts.
For more information on any of these opportunities, contact Business Development Executive Chris Pugh at (614) 888-8801 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
