Boost for meals on wheels

Meals-on-Wheels-donationContinuing a long standing tradition of support, the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 78 Poppy Fund donated $1,500 to support Meals on Wheels in Prince Edward County.

The branch has assisted the Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors deliver meals on wheels since 1980.

On hand to present the donation from the Poppy Fund was Tom McCaw, Chair of the fund and second vice-president; and Mike Slatter, service officer at the Picton Branch. Ken Noble, Treasurer of Community Care accepted the cheque.

“There’s been an expansion of Meals on Wheels in the County,” said Debbie MacDonald Moynes, executive director, “and this funding will be a great help as we ensure that all County seniors receive the support that they need.”

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association began delivering Meals on Wheels in 1980. Besides Meals on Wheels the agency offers other 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.
