Thank you to Phyllis and Jerry for delivering more than just a meal to our clients! When Phyllis began thinking about their future, she decided that they should find a way to give back to the community while they still could before they needed help themselves. Jerry was on board and wanted to give back to the community for all that they’ve received up to this point. In 2009, Phyllis saw an ad in the local paper stating that volunteers were needed for Meals on Wheels and she said “it just clicked!” She says that the service is so important and jokes that the meals look so good when they deliver that they wish they could eat it!
They say that it’s the little things, like the appreciative and enthusiastic greetings and goodbyes from the clients when they visit, that are worth their weight in gold.
If you are interested in learning more about how you can volunteer for 2 hours, once every four weeks as a driver as well, or how you can volunteer at our annual Giant Pumpkin Carve, please call our office at 856-935-3663.
