Volunteers on Wheels Keep Meals Arriving Despite Snow
Christmas is a great time to reflect and count our blessings. We have just been reminded of the tremendous benefit our community enjoys through the selfless giving of our volunteers as we celebrate Volunteer Day on Tuesday. What better gift can there be than the gift of time and caring?
In spite of the recent bitterly cold temperatures and hazardous driving conditions, our Meals on Wheels and Dinners @ Home volunteers have not missed a single delivery.
"Neither rain, nor sleet nor snow..." prevent regular delivery for those so dependent upon our service. Our wonderful, kind, friendly , patient and dependable volunteers deliver Meals on Wheels six days a week, 52 weeks a year.
The only day we do not deliver is Christmas Day, although we do provide an extra meal on the previous delivery day for our clients' Christmas dinner.
We are proud to again partner with Home Instead (initiators of the program) and London Drugs in the Santa for a Senior Program.
Hats off and thank you to our great Meals on Wheels volunteers. And a big thank-you to our Kiwanis Clubs, the Kelowna Full Gospel Church and the City of Kelowna for recognizing the importance of this valuable not-for-profit organization and for supporting us so generously, enabling us to continue this important service.
If you would like to give the gift of good health and nutriotion to a friend or family member, donate, register for the service, or volunteer, please call us at 763-2424
