The weather had been ‘iffy’ right up until the night before, but the morning of March 21st could not have been more perfect as we welcomed community leaders to join our regularly scheduled volunteers to deliver their meal routes and learn more about Meals on Wheels of Greater Lynchburg!
Lynchburg Police and Fire Chief, City Council, and business leaders took their time; and even Southpaw, the Hillcats’ mascot, got into the spirit as he joined Board Member and volunteer driver Bob Day and Hillcats Director of Sales Matt Klein in deliveries!
WSET’s Noreen Turyn joined volunteer driver and former Board Member Jean Yates on another route. Noreen is a ‘veteran’ driver herself, having participated almost every year!
Our meal recipients are most grateful for the support they see when area leaders get involved. It is our hope that by proudly and publicly modeling this form of community service, these individuals will become more effective advocates for Meals on Wheels, and inspire others to act!
