|Happy Anniversary Madison County Meals-on-Wheels!|
For 30 Years of Dedicated Service
January 2013 is a milestone for the 30th anniversary of the Madison County Meals-on-Wheels program. Since its inception in 1983, the program has provided three decades of nourishing food and a daily visit to homebound, older adults and individuals with a medical challenge or disability. Last year, Meals-on-Wheels volunteers delivered 44,903 meals to nearly 300 clients throughout Madison County.
“The relationship between LifeCare Alliance and the Madison County community is wonderful,” states Chuck Gehring, President, and CEO of LifeCare Alliance. “It has been 10 years since we began delivering meals to Madison County residents; and we are grateful for our 100 key volunteers like the County Commissioners, Madison County Chamber of Commerce, Huntington Bank, Jefferson Industries, Hurt Battelle Library, The Arbors at London, The Arbors at West Jefferson, Nissen, West Jefferson High School Student Council, Staples, and the many individuals who check on our clients daily delivering hot nutritious meals that keep them independent and safe in their homes where they want to be. We look forward to all future endeavors with the Madison County community.”
LifeCare Alliance is proud of the relationship it has with Madison County. The heart and soul of the Madison County Meals-on-Wheels program is Leah Baird. Leah has been affiliated with the program since its inception in 1983, and coordinated the program for 23 years. She manages 100 volunteer drivers and makes certain that each route is covered on a daily basis. Leah recruits individuals, social clubs, schools and businesses to serve as volunteers by delivering the meals during their lunch hours.
The Corporate Meal Route Program is an innovative way that businesses in Madison County get involved and help the community at the same time. The philosophy of the program is simple: any company or group interested in volunteering to deliver Meals-on-Wheels during the noon hour can be a part of the program. The volunteers are trained at their worksite, and a route is developed nearby which takes about an hour to cover. To learn how you can become a Corporate Meal Route Partner or an individual volunteer, call 614-444-MEAL.
