Volunteers Shine Despite Trying Winter


Snow mounds piled high, but our volunteers arrived at our kitchen every day to prep, package and deliver medically-appropriate meals to the homes of 1,525 critically-ill individuals throughout Massachusetts.


"I have volunteered for 10 years, and this last Saturday's delivery was the most difficult ever. The streets were so narrow, and I couldn't find a place to pull over or park," said Debbi Hildebrandt, who delivered meals shortly after one of Boston's largest snowfalls.


To make the delivery, Debbie parked her car on the main road and walked to the homes of our clients.

"It helped me remember why we do this. If it is this difficult for me, healthy and with a car, what is it like for our clients to try and get to the market and prepare food?  We "do good" at Community Servings and it took a nasty day like last Saturday to remind me of that," she said.
