Improving the lives of people as they age
While delivering a Meal to one of our Meals on Wheels clients, our volunteer driver noticed a dog running in and out of a run down looking trailer, with a tarp covering part of the roof, and plastic covering some of the windows. The door to the trailer was wide open. After delivering the meal, she approached the dog to investigate and was surprised when a woman in a wheelchair approached the door of the trailer. She introduced herself and asked the women some questions about how she was doing. She realized immediately that she would qualify for Meals on Wheels. We were able to get this woman signed up for Meals on Wheels, and deliver her pet food for her dog. She also gets twice weekly wellness checks when we deliver he meals to her.
Participating in the Kitsap Great Give provides us with an opportunity to promote the work that we do in the community to a new group of donors and to leverage the support of those donors to further our mission to improve the lives of adults as they age.
