Every year the Agency recognizes an outstanding supporter. This year Meals on Wheels presented the Agency’s Community Partnership Award to the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley for its outstanding support.  Federation members have delivered meals to Meals on Wheels clients on Christmas Day for forty years.  These volunteers donated 3,712 hours, made 9,280 visits and delivered 18,560 meals!

 

Pam Bechtel, Meals on Wheels Executive Director, said: “Over the past 40 years, the willingness of hundreds of individuals and families to come together to deliver meals and a friendly greeting to all those clients spending the holiday on their own was the embodiment of kindness and service.  We can’t thank Jewish Federation volunteers enough for this profound commitment to reaching out to our homebound clients, alleviating the isolation and loneliness that too often accompanies the holiday season.”
