At Meals on Wheels of Lancaster, we know that home-delivered meals enables our clients to live and recover in the comfort of their own homes. When By Your Side Home Care, which provides in-home care and assisted living services for senior citizens who want to stay in their own homes as they age, reached out and wanted to partner with us, we were thrilled.
This generous organization reached out to us with a wonderful idea: they were looking for an organization to bless with some kindness and generosity on Valentine’s Day. One of their staff knew one of our long-time volunteers and asked if they could make some care baskets for our meal recipients in the Leola and new Holland area.
These Valentine’s day care packages were much more special than we ever realized! Filled to the brim with Wilbur buds chocolates, nice lotions, warm socks, and fresh cut flowers! Our clients in the New Holland, Leola and Terre Hill areas were floored. We were flooded with calls from grateful meal recipients who had received their Valentine’s day care package. It made the whole day special.
We were even more thrilled when By Your Side said this isn’t going to be a one-time thing! They want to do something for more clients in other delivery areas in a few months for another occasion. We are so grateful and want to send a huge thank you to the staff in the above photo (and those not in it) who assembled these care packs and for the services they provide to the aging community and their families as well.
