#BetterTogether: Community Partnerships

The Monica Hayes Team, Skogman Realty, presented a donation for our upcoming Elderberry Box fundraiser to benefit our Meals on Wheels clients. Afterwards, these realtors went out and delivered hot meals to people on three different routes. Thank you for your support!
Hot meals are back

We started delivering hot meals Monday through Friday on June 1. Our volunteers were greeted by very happy clients. They were excited to have daily hot meals and they were also happy to have their volunteers back in person. Phone calls during the pandemic were appreciated but in-person visits are better.
Elder Services closed for Independence holiday
Elder Services will be closed on Monday, July 5 in observance of Independence Day. Meals will not be delivered that day. We did deliver frozen meals on July 2 for those who wanted them for that Monday.
Client Cameo: Lucy
"I love Meals on Wheels. I like the food portions, they're just right for a meal and they fill you up. I like that I can put the meal in the microwave and it's quick to heat up. The meals also help give me a variety of food that I was not getting before receiving Meals on Wheels. And, I no longer eat junk food because I have good nutritious food to eat. I've lost seven pounds and I feel better.

The volunteers that deliver the meals are all very good. You can tell by the way they talk to you that they enjoy what they do and that they care."
