Young Students Volunteer for Meals on Wheels

A few days off from school provided a unique opportunity to South Hope Community Church youth group, One80, and their leaders to deliver Meals on Wheels to seniors, shut-ins and disabled individuals during their Thanksgiving break. Leaders Tim Davis, Zoe Davis and Rowan Champeon along with One80 members Jonathan Davis, Matthew Mank, Tara Adolphsen and Natalia Davis delivered 30 meals around Rockland.

These young volunteers saw firsthand how so many of our older and disabled neighbors struggle to stay independent and healthy. Five days a week, fifty-two weeks a year MCH Meals on Wheels delivers the support that keeps people in their own homes, providing nutritious meals and a daily connection to a caring volunteer. In many cases, this meal may be the only meal a person will eat all day and the conversation with the volunteer will be their only face-to-face interaction. “These young kids learned a little about how friendship and caring are the heart of MCH Meals on Wheels.” said Katie Tarbox, Volunteer Coordinator for the program.
