20161116_113629November 16th – Senior Corps-RSVP volunteers collaborated with our partners at Catholic Charities in Arlington Heights to package two-day shelf stable food packs for 105 Meals on Wheels recipients.

Catholic Charities provides hot meal deliveries Monday through Friday, leaving recipients without service on Saturdays and Sundays. The volunteers filled packs with enough cans of tuna, soup, crackers, oatmeal, breakfast bars, raisins, fruit cups, and applesauce to cover the two day gap.

Two days later, some of the volunteers joined the Meals on Wheels drivers, helping deliver the two-day meal packs, along with the regularly scheduled meals, to the 105 recipients.
