We plan on ending the year with a bang. Due to happenings beyond our control which necessitated the changing of our calendar of events, January 25th is the new date for our Volunteer Luncheon.
We look forward to another successful year of serving our communities (Cobb, Middletown, and Hidden Valley Lake). We appreciate our volunteers. There is no way we could exist without all of you.
I would like to thank everyone who participated in the “Stuff the Subaru” event held November 22nd. We reached our goal to supply our homebound seniors with emergency food kits to be used when the power goes out or any kind of emergency which makes it difficult for the Meals on Wheels drivers to deliver fresh meals arises.
We have been blessed with generous donators. Donations of time and cash make our programs doable. We are able to supply our community clients with healthy lunches served five days per week in our dining hall, as well as, deliver healthy lunches to our homebound seniors. We have a large library of books, a great thrift store, and DVDs to be checked out. We often match up our seniors with much needed medical equipment: walkers, wheel chairs, shower seats, toilet boosters, as well as caregivers.
We have food giveaways weekly for our clients. These are due to Hardester’s donations of dated items. We supply our homebound seniors with emergency kits to be used during power outages or anytime difficulties with deliveries occur. Thanks to all who assist in any way. Caregivers, you are cherished.
