Helen Williams Volunteer of the Year 2011

Helen Williams presented the Community Care for Seniors Volunteer of the Year Award by Jennifer Johnston.

I believe the two most important parts of our Meals on Wheels program is the quality of the food and the wonderful volunteers who are dedicated to delivering them.  Volunteering to deliver meals to seniors in our community requires a caring spirit, and I can tell you that Helen Williams, this year’s Volunteer of the Year, is a very caring person.

Helen has been volunteering with Community Care since 1996.  She is currently a regular volunteer with our Meals on Wheels program; and has been delivering each week on Wednesdays to the Bloomfield/ Wellington area since 2005.

Volunteering is something Helen has always been passionate about. Helen has been giving back to this community for many years.

Helen was born in Mitchell, Ontario – near Stratford, and was a teacher for a few years before getting married.  She met her husband Don in Toronto at a 4 H conference.  After Helen and Don were married, they purchased a farm near the original Williams Family Farm just outside of Bloomfield.  Together they have four children and 10 grandchildren.  Helen was a stay at home wife and mother, but Helen was not one to stay at home.  She has always been actively involved in her community.

Helen has volunteered with many charities, as well as being extremely active in her church. Helen has played a very important role in leading many 4H clubs throughout the years.  Truth be told, Helen has always been ahead of the time.  Before recycling became a part of the big global picture, Helen was already doing her part to keep things earth friendly, re-using items as much as possible – therefore not wasting what could be used again.  Something we can all take note of.

Helen is very passionate about Prince Edward County and proud to call this her home.  Whenever she has out-of-town guests come to visit, she takes them on a tour of the County and shares the history of it.

Helen is genuinely interested in the well-being of the clients; it’s not just about the delivery of the meals.

Helen is a very committed, responsible volunteer.  She is very supportive in her own quiet way of all the clients on her Meals on Wheels route.

Helen, Community Care is very grateful for your continued dedication to volunteering with the Meals on Wheels program.  We truly hope that you have enjoyed your experiences and that you have received back two-fold what you have given.  You are a wonderful volunteer Helen and it is my honour to present you with Community Care’s Volunteer of the Year Award.
-Jennifer Johnston, Co-ordinator
