To The Editor:
Not only during this week of National Volunteer Recognition, April 21 – April 27 but, each and every other day of the year as well, the staff, Board of Directors, and recipients of Massena Meals on Wheels wish to give our utmost appreciation, praise, and respect to all of the volunteers that help Keep the Wheels Rolling for our organization. In 2012 our dedicated volunteers delivered over 22,000 meals. It is early in 2013 and already over 6,150 meals have been delivered by these generous souls.
Our volunteers give so freely of their time and energy. They do this on a complete basis of their own free will, they are not reimbursed for miles traveled, gas used, or time spent visiting with recipients or staff. They are here because they want to be, and for that we are very grateful.
I hope the volunteers of Meals on Wheels know just how much they are appreciated and enjoyed. It is a pleasure to be surrounded by such a wonderful and inspiring group of individuals.
