Friday, April 25, 2014
NASHUA – St. Joseph Community Services, the provider of Meals on Wheels and Community Dining throughout Hillsborough County, welcomed community leaders to its dining sites during Community Champions Week from March 17-21.
CCW is a national campaign sponsored by the Meals on Wheels Association of America to generate public awareness about senior hunger and to celebrate the valuable services provided by senior nutrition programs across the country.
Visiting the Nashua site at 70 Temple St. were Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau, state Sens. Bette Lasky and Peggy Gilmour, Executive Councilor Debora Pignatelli and Chris Williams, president and CEO of the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce.
“It is always an honor to be asked to participate in delivering Meals on Wheels in our community,” Lozeau said. “St. Joseph Community Services provides the much needed assistance of delivering a nutritious meal, a friendly hello and a safety check to some of our most vulnerable and elderly residents.”
Visiting the John O’Leary Adult Community Center in Merrimack were Police Chief Mark Doyle, Executive Director Deb Courtemanche of the Merrimack Chamber of Commerce and five chamber board members.
“All of our champions showed their support for the Meals on Wheels program by volunteering to package and/or deliver meals to the older and disabled adults in their communities,” said Meghan Brady, president of SJCS. “We were thrilled to have their assistance.”
