Letter: Meals on Wheels thanks volunteers
On Feb. 16, Prescott Meals on Wheels celebrated the 160 volunteers who help us sustain the pride and efficiency in serving the Prescott homebound community. We would like to thank those who generously donated to the event: Fry's food stores, Manzanita Grill, True Value Hardware, The Peridot's executive director, Rebecca Ratliff and their Chef, Robert Whatley, Shamrock Foods, and The Chino Valley High School 's Culinary Art students and their director Dolisa Pehl.
Without the generosity of our volunteers, Prescott organizations, businesses and individuals, we would not be able to serve the community in the capacity we do. Prescott Meals on Wheels delivers 150 meals each weekday to the home bound, provides frozen weekend meals to our clients and serves 60-80 daily lunches in the Meals on Wheels Viola Jimulla Community Dining Room. Many of our clients have no outside contact beyond the delivery of our meals. Not only do our drivers provide social contact, but observe wellness issues as well. With the generosity of the Prescott community, we can continue our mission "of providing one hot, nourishing meal per day to the elderly and/or disabled, to enable them to maintain independent living with safety and dignity." Thank you, Prescott.
