National Volunteer Week: April 6-12, 2014
Volunteers play such a vital role in keeping the wheels turning here at MOWAM. The gift of their time and talent means a world of difference in the lives of the homebound older adults and people with disabilities whom we serve. Whether performing minor home repair jobs for our Handy Wheels program; shopping for our Groceries to Go clients, bagging or delivering non-perishable food items for H.O.P.E. (Healthy Options Program for the Elderly), or helping to care for our clients’ furry friends as part of our P.A.L.S. (Pets Assisting the Lives of Seniors) program, our volunteers are helping those we serve maintain their independence and dignity. We thank you Volunteers for your continued commitment to help us help those in need – you are truly putting compassion into action! – Michael C. Brown MOWAM Board Chair
