The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Delivery service by first responders begins


The Emergency Operations Center (EOC), in partnership with Washington Gorge Action Programs (WAGAP) began delivering essential supplies such as groceries to community members Friday, March 27. This service is intended for members of the Goldendale community in quarantine (may have been exposed to COVID-19), isolation (have tested positive for COVID-19), and high risk and vulnerable populations.

Delivery personnel are first responders from various local fire departments, Sheriff’s Posse, and Search and Rescue (SAR). Delivery teams consist of two or more personnel, wearing agency identifying clothing such as vests, and will maintain physical distancing rules of six feet or more from other persons. They leave groceries at the doorstep to help prevent the possible spread of COVID-19.

The WAGAP Call Center’s hours of operation are Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. To access this service, community members should contact the WAGAP Call Center at (509) 493- 2662 or (800) 755-1192 for guidance on participating stores and the process.
