Free Home Delivery of Medications and Groceries

Stay Home & Stay Safe


Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus epidemic, the Center for Disease Control has asked all Americans to practice social distancing by staying away from public places, and anywhere people congregate in groups of ten or more. The Coronavirus has been proven to be most harmful to our older generation and people with underlying health issues such as respiratory issues, Cancer, autoimmune diseases, and Diabetes,

In order to help our citizens stay safe, the Village of Scales Mound has made arrangements to provide home delivery of groceries and prescriptions for those that wish to stay at home and avoid potential contact with the virus.

Groceries for delivery to your home may be ordered here in town at Pat’s Country House Groceries or Tammy’s Piggly Wiggly in Galena. Prescriptions for delivery to your home may be ordered from Hartig Drug (Galena) or Wal-Mart (Galena).

Any groceries or prescriptions must be ordered and paid for before they can be picked up by our couriers. If your prescriptions are from Wal-Mart, you must have a check made out in the exact amount to hand to the courier before he leaves Scales Mound.

This service is provided at no cost to you and is offered to everyone!!

To maintain safe distances as per CDC recommendations, our couriers will not enter your home, and will not accept tips.


If you would like to take advantage of this free service please call Margaret Townsend to make arrangements at:  (815)-541-1658
