Thank you to Barbara for delivering more than just a meal! When Barbara retired, she saw that there was a need for volunteers to deliver freshly made, healthy meals to the seniors and disabled members of our community that are homebound, she decided to take the Meals on Wheels training and help out. Her husband decided to join her as well and they now deliver as a team. Barbara finds that volunteering gives her a great sense of satisfaction in knowing that she is making a difference in her community. She knows the importance of talking to the clients and making sure that they are safe and well and feels that they brighten up her day just as much as she brightens theirs! She understands that she may be the only face that they see all day so she tries to make sure that her visit makes a difference for them. She describes Meals on Wheels as her personal ministry – caring about the needs of others!
