The Rotary Club of Summerland hosted it's annual Meals on Wheels Volunteer Appreciation Event at the Summerland Seniors Village on Tuesday, May 29th. Thank you to Rotarian, Sharon Lusch, and her team who organized this years wonderful event with sponsorship from Retirement Concepts/Summerland Seniors Village.
The objective of Meals on Wheels is to provide meals to those who are not able to provide meals for themselves. Clients may be the elderly or those convalescing following surgery. The meals are put together in the Seniors Centre in Summerland and then distributed to the Meals on Wheels clients. Charlotte Burley coordinates all volunteers and distribution. Nine volunteer drivers are involved each month, as well as a monthly coordinator that ensures that the meal boxes are ready for delivery.
For more information about the Meals on Wheels program, please contact coordinator, Charlotte Burley, at 250-494-1173. Thank you to all the Meals on Wheels volunteers! We appreciate everything that you do!
