2014 Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services Volunteer Appreciation Picnic

Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — Over 850 volunteers actively participate in our work, allowing every dollar spent to provide many dollars worth of services to older adults in Contra Costa County.

From sharing time with a lonely homebound elder once a week, delivering a warm meal each day to a frail shut-in, to rebuilding a dilapidated staircase for a diabetic senior who needs to get to his dialysis appointments, our volunteers have truly dedicated hearts. It takes generosity, understanding, empathy, compassion, patience, and dedication to be a Meals on Wheels volunteer.

It is a privilege to honor them at our Annual Volunteer Appreciation Event and BBQ on Thursday, June 19th at Heather Farm in Walnut Creek, CA.
