Our Volunteers are the heart of our organization. Without them, we could not have weathered the COVID-19 storm! A special thanks to Laura Rowan, Debbie White and Joy Kent who helped plan meal delivery while we were in quarantine. Laura and Kerianne Hearns (and her two children) assembled and delivered "COVID care packages", and they prepared our successful grant applications. Drivers Shirley Baldwin, Alan Gernsheimer, Nick Baldwin and Jane Baldwin helped deliver meals. Larry Kent, Paul Nickerson, Debbie, Shirley and Laura contacted each client every week just to check in to see if anything was needed. Joy contacted all of our loyal volunteers to find out who was willing to drive and to work in the kitchen when we reopened.
Now that we are back to full service, many more volunteers have become involved. Kitchen volunteers include Laura, Debbie, Joy and Kerianne plus Irene Myerhoefer, Julie Brouhard, Janet Mack, Paul Mixon, Jean Gianelos, Jyoti & Shar Chakraverti and Desmond Johnson. Drivers include Shirley, Laura, Paul, Peter Moore, Barbara Adams, Kelly Taylor, Paul Shirley, Tom Adams, Marjorie Wiemels, Karina Ream, Paul Schendel, Paul Mixon, Cindy Oakley, Joe Farkas, Sarah Merrill, and Meg, Holly and Jed Hunter.
