Meals on Wheels volunteers from Pleasant View Inc. were the proud winners of a $15 Wal-Mart gift card which is awarded each month through a drawing by Volunteer Coordinator Dawn Shull as part of their Volunteer Appreciation Program. Second prize of Chick-Fil -A coupons were won by volunteer Don Bourne.
Six JMU students spent three hours volunteering at Price Rotary Senior Center helping Volunteer Coordinator Dawn Shull with packaging meals and decorating brown bags for the Meals on Wheels program. Colorful pictures and encouraging phrases were added to the bags which would be sent with meals and would hopefully brighten up the recipient’s day.
Asbury UMC Pastor Bob Talbott along with members of the church took turns delivering Meals on Wheels for Price Rotary Senior Center the week of August 4-8.
After contacting Volunteer Coordinator Dawn Shull a schedule was set up for them to deliver each day. Many enjoyed their experience so much they would like to continue with the program.
We matched the abilities of both the Seniors and the children to create groups where the children could read to Seniors or vice versa. This interaction was a very positive experience not only for the Seniors who were very happy to meet the children but also for the children.
Deanna Reed, Roberta Webb Child Care Summer Program Coordinator, spoke about how pleased she was that we could interact as most of these children don’t interact with people of the seniors’age, because their grandparents are often in their 50s or 60s.
