Still Needed: 2 February Holiday Meals
Earlier this month we told you about our Holiday Meals Program, which gives our seniors the opportunity to request having a meal brought to them around a particular holiday each month. This month we were short 2 meals and deliveries, and are still looking for volunteers to make or buy, and deliver to those seniors. We have a senior couple in Glen Ellyn, and a single senior in Glendale Heights, who had both requested February meals, but have not yet received one.
Delivering a meal to a senior is a great way to brighten someone else’s day, but also a great way to brighten your own. We’ve already received some great feedback from volunteers who delivered a meal this month. One volunteer, who made meals for two seniors, wrote to tell us that she enjoyed making the meals and said that both seniors “welcomed me into their homes and were very glad to see me. They were warm and friendly, which made this experience that much more rewarding!”
If you would like to help, please contact us (630-221-8340 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll get you in touch with either the senior couple or the single senior so that you may make arrangements for the type of meal you will be bringing, and to schedule a convenient time to deliver the meal. And to all of our volunteers who delivered meals, THANK YOU! Your thoughtfulness means so much to our seniors and to us!
