Hello Seniors,

Hello Seniors,

 

The dish room remodel is well underway and if anyone has ever done construction projects, you will have had first-hand experience with the surprises that can arise. The plumbing components required for our new dish machine have been slightly complicated, but a game plan has been established and we are on a roll again towards completion. The new dish machine will help cut down the work load of having to wash all our pots and pans by hand. We are super excited about that!

 

You have heard me say over and over how it takes a village, and the community we live in is so generous with supporting Meals on Wheels. The Plumbers & Steamfitters Union Local 375 generously donated $2,000 toward the refitting that needs to happen with the dish room. We are also lucky to have Patrick Mechanical’s abilities to accomplish the retrofit and look forward to finishing the dish machine installation in March through a maintenance grant which we will apply for to finance the work. Patrick Mechanical also donated some materials and a stainless steel sink to bring ease to the project. How amazing is that?

 

I need to give one more huge thank you to Johnson River for helping us problem-solve through our unforeseen challenges. Micah and his crew are wonderful in keeping us on track toward making the improvements successful and turn the impossible into possible! I am asking all who read this to consider donating to the Meals on Wheels program this holiday. The Meals on Wheels program is still in need of financial support to provide the 52,000 meals we deliver each year to homebound seniors and are asking you to think of us during the Christmas season in sponsoring meals for a senior. Every dollar donated helps us to assure a senior does not have to face hunger and gets the balanced nutrition they need. It takes $150.00 per month to provide 30 home-delivered meals while receiving a wellness check from the driver.

 

Last month, I shared with you 74% of the seniors we send meals to are at or below an income level of $15,000. Can you imagine? The elders in our community built Fairbanks to the amazing city it is today. Help us to keep those we serve living safely in the community they love and to assure no one endures silent hunger. Thank you!

 

Hugs of thanks to an amazing community!
