The Parish’s commitment to the Meals On Wheels at Kedron has continued for over 50 years. This effort requires six volunteer delivery teams of drivers and assistants who work from around 10.40 am to 12.15pm. With reserves we currently have a team of approximately 14 people which is very often not adequate to cover the absences of people on vacation or illness. We are very appreciative of the support we also receive from parishioner’s friends & family who help supplement the team’s monthly effort. There is always room for anyone who could assist for two hours on the second Tuesday of each month & you would be most welcome.
Covid has again last year made our commitment challenging at times for our volunteers but last year I am pleased to report saw an easing of circumstances. We also welcomed Narelle into our ranks.
We have a wonderful team and the fellowship before setting out to deliver meals is very uplifting. The recipients are always very pleased to see us, not just for their meal, but also for a friendly person to talk to. It is a really worthwhile ministry to be able to help these people who without our assistance would not be able to remain in their own home.
I feel that one good thing to come out of covid is the embracing of community committment so if you are interested in assisting please phone me.
