For the fifth straight year, Meals On Wheels has been selected as one of the five participating nonprofits; CVCOA contracts with 12 different local Meals on Wheels programs to provide meals in their 54-town service area, according to Kathy Paquet, CVCOA nutrition & wellness coordinator.
Employees from Twin City Subaru joined forces with CVCOA over the holiday season by participating in meal as well as attending the annual Christmas party at The Greater Northfield Senior Center in Northfield, Vt.
“It was such a nice experience to spend time with the wonderful attendees at the holiday lunch, and the employees too; they were all amazing people,” said Madeleine Cave, Twin City Subaru internet marketing specialist, who attended the holiday party. “It was a perfect way to get local seniors together for the holidays, and it was a great social event with lots of laughs!”
Twin City Subaru Internet Marketing Director Cara Gorman and Sales & Leasing Consultant Joe Sweeney delivered meals with a volunteer from the Meals On Wheels program last week.
“My grandmother was a Meals On Wheels recipient for several years. It was nice to have an opportunity to give back to a program that gave so much to my family. Delivering meals as part of the Share the Love event introduced me to some pretty amazing Central Vermont Seniors. It was an experience I will always remember and a good reminder of how important it is to help seniors,” Gorman said.
Over the last fiscal year, over 187,000 meals were provided through the CVCOA’s contracts.
“Without Meals On Wheels, many of our elders wouldn’t eat well,” said Paquet in the CVCOA press release for the event. “The meal is more than a meal; it shows that the community cares about our elders.”
Both Twin City Subaru and the CVCOA are proud to be partnering with one another.
“I’m happy to see that you [all] found the Meals on Wheels and Community Christmas meal a rewarding experience,”
