The Picton Legion Poppy Fund presented Community Care for Seniors an early Christmas present in the form of a $1,500 donation to support Meals on Wheels.

Since 1980, when Meals on Wheels were first delivered in The County, Branch 78 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Picton has been supportive of the needs of seniors living in the County.

Presenting the $1,500 from the Poppy Fund was Pat Burrows, President of Branch 78; and Rusty Harrison, Chair of the Poppy Fund for Branch 78 of the Royal Canadian Legion in Picton.  Barbara Lyons, Vice President of Community Care accepted the donation.

“We are about to launch delivery of hot Meals on Wheels in Ameliasburgh,” sid Debbie MacDonald Moynes, executive director “and this funding will be a great help in that area and for the entire Meals on Wheels program.”

AS well as Meals on Wheels, Community Care for Seniors offers services such as transportation to medical appointments, noon-time dinners for seniors, foot care, help with forms, respite, home maintenance, rural route reassurance and telephone reassurance programs.  The agency is partly funded by the Ministry of Health & Long-Term Care through the Local Health Integration Network and supported by donations and community fundraising efforts, such as Community Care’s Thrift Shop at 153 Main Street in Picton.
