You never know the change that you’re making until you see it, but delivering meals to your homebound neighbours like Suzannah can open your eyes. “Without people like your volunteers, people like me would have to move into a nursing home” she says. Like many other clients, Suzannah lives alone. All too often, homebound Edmontonians are a forgotten group. They can go days without having a face-to face conversation with a friend or neighbour. That changes when someone decides to donate their time and help out at Edmonton Meals on Wheels. Edmonton Meals on Wheels is a local non-profit that helps to connect people in need with food services. Moreover, their service ensures that those who are homebound are getting the human interaction that they need.
Edmonton Meals on Wheels is currently looking to add 30 new volunteers to their roster in 30 days. Kick off your summer by taking part in this great initiative and helping those in need, right in your own backyard. Providing food security and a break in isolation is a great way to give back to those who need a helping hand. Consider joining in and participating in Edmonton Meals on Wheels’ #YEG30in30 campaign to help those around you, today!
