Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear Friends and Family,
A little about me...
I have been with Meals on Wheels People for almost 19 years now and I am very thankful for all the wonderful people I've met throughout the years- in the many different positions and locations I have worked in. I have gained many friendships as well...
The lady in the picture to the left (Rita H.), for instance, has been a participant and volunteer with Meals on Wheels People for at least 11 years- up to 5 days a week! She started off volunteering at the Elm Court Center in Downtown Portland- then followed me to Aloha where I worked at a contract site for MOWP (Edwards Center) and then to my current location...the North Plains Senior Center.
When asked what she has enjoyed most about her time at Meals on Wheels People, Rita replied "Seeing all the familiar faces at the centers and seeing how much the participants appreciate their meals. I enjoy the special relationship the kitchen coordinators have with each of the seniors that come into the center- making the atmosphere fun and enjoyable for everyone- volunteers and seniors alike."
I have had the opportunity to see, first-hand, how much our services and presence in the lives of our seniors means to them and their families. We provide them, not only food to nourish their bodies, but companionship and socialization, the ability to remain independent in their own homes, volunteer opportunities after retirement, and so much more! I appreciate the fact that I work for an organization that truly loves (an often forgotten about) population but as a non-profit, we depend on the support from people like you to continue the work we do so...
Please support the Stride for Seniors Charity Walk for Meals on Wheels People! Help me raise awareness and funds to prevent hunger and social isolation in the senior community.
Meals on Wheels People creates and delivers 1.3 million nutritious meals every year throughout the greater Portland-Vancouver metro area with no waiting list. That's 1.3 million moments of human connection and essential service to those who need it most.
