Meet Priscilla & Karen Sparks, sisters-in-law who deliver the Elmer route. They had both lost their husbands within 1 1/2 years of each other and learned that Meals on Wheels needed drivers in the Elmer area. They thought it would be a tribute to them, a way to give back, and spend some time together so they started volunteering 10 years ago.
Both enjoy the relationships they have made with clients, other volunteers and the staff.
They support other organizations such as the Red Cross, missionaries at church, and veterans groups but say Meals on Wheels is the only organization where they can get out of the car and truly touch the lives of individuals that they grow to care about.
“We see the difference that each of us makes. And it changes us . . . thank you for the opportunity. ”
Thank you Priscilla & Karen for delivering More Thank Just A Meal!
