"During a delivery I advised the client that I had missed her the week before. She began telling me her story of why she wasn’t home. She had been in the hospital due to a suicide attempt. I listened to her and spent a few minutes with her. She needed someone to talk to. I was her person. So along with a hot meal, I gave her a sense of purpose also and as always, I left her with a smile on my face wishing her a very happy day."

What Inspired You to Volunteer with Meals on Wheels?

It was not so much what inspired me, but who inspired me. My husband Gary started delivering meals once a week after he retired at the encouragement of a good friend of ours.

Ron Corbett

After an injury impacted Ron Corbett’s mother’s mobility, he turned to Horizons. Both Ron and his mother experienced the human connection and peace of mind provided by daily Meals on Wheels deliveries.

“That daily contact with a volunteer was so important. It was a big relief to me as the only family caregiver in the area knowing she was going to get one good meal a day. She looked forward to it every day.”

Dana Dinderman

Dana Dinderman has volunteered with Horizons since 2020, finding fulfillment along her route as she delivers meals on a weekly basis.

“They are not just clients I deliver to, but friends, adopted grandparents and parents, and people that have become so important to me. My heart is full after delivering meals each week.”
