Bedford officers support Meals on Wheels for SJCS community

BEDFORD – St. Joseph Community Services (SJCS), the provider of Meals on Wheels throughout Hillsborough County, was pleased to welcome Sgt. Kyle Thrasher and Communication Specialist Nina Malley of the Bedford Police Department as Community Champions the week of March 21 as part of a national event promoted by Meals on Wheels America. These Community Champions volunteered their time at SJCS Meals on Wheels’ nutrition site at the William B. Cashin Center in Manchester to help prepare and deliver nutritious meals to homebound elderly and disabled adults in Bedford. These Champions were joined by many others throughout the county.

By volunteering, the Community Champions helped to generate public awareness about elder hunger and isolation and to celebrate the invaluable services provided by SJCS Meals on Wheels. Bedford Meals on Wheels recipients were equally pleased to have an additional visitor during their week day.

St. Joseph Community Services is dedicated to promoting better physical and mental health of older and other qualified adults through the provision of nutritious meals and vital safety checks. SJCS strives to meet the diverse needs of its clients through volunteerism and extensive collaboration with other community services.
