MISSION FOR THE MONTH

MEALS ON WHEELS
Elizabeth Forward Meals on Wheels was founded in 1981 by Dorothy Howell.  The group’s mission is three-fold:  provide a nutritious meal, companionship, and health/safety checks on seniors.  For many recipients, the only person they see during the day is the volunteer delivering a hot meal which gives them something to look forward to each day.

Volunteers gather early in the morning to prepare the food at Central Highlands United Methodist Church.  Two-member teams — a driver and a runner — deliver meals to more than 40 recipients in Forward Township, Elizabeth Township, Elizabeth, and Jefferson Hills.  About 45 volunteers make that happen every day during the week.

Meals can be delivered as often as requested during the week.  A donation is requested for each day meals are received.  For those unable to make a donation, the Adopt-A-Senior program was implemented, giving individuals and groups an opportunity to make a monthly financial donation to pay for someone’s meals.

Preparing meals isn’t the only way Meals on Wheels meets the needs of local seniors.  In the fall, volunteers pack and deliver emergency kits with nonperishable food, personal products and other items like flashlights and batteries.  As a special treat, a local pizza shop donates a pizza for each client.

To assure the meal program continues in Elizabeth Forward, local grocery stores, restaurants, churches, and civic groups provide donations and services.

SPRING EF PROJECT DATES
EF Project will do its third weekend service project April 20-22.  We are hoping to have three work sites where volunteers in middle school through adults can help homeowners who are unable financially or physically to do work at their home.  If you know of someone in the Elizabeth Forward area who may be eligible, see Carol F. or a member of the Missions Committee.  The cost is $50 for each participant.  If you are interested in making a difference in someone's life, prayerfully consider serving.  We can make a difference in our community — one soul at a time.

HELP “CHANGE” THE WORLD
On the third Sunday of each month we will take an offering of your loose change that will go toward supporting missions.  Empty those change purses!
