Lives lived. Stories told. The seniors we serve are the same people who helped shape our nation. Using their minds, ingenuity and hard work, they were there when we needed them. They fought for our freedom, invented machines, developed medicines, dared to dream and ensured a brighter future for us all. Their stories are our stories. We share their stories with you in honor of all of the seniors whom we serve and who inspire us to do what we do. We are Meals On Wheels, and this is our story.
Helen Cosgrove has lived all of her life in State College, Pennsylvania. Helen recently celebrated her 90th birthday, but she still values her independence. However, she’s had to give up driving and can’t get around without the use of a walker. Her children and grandchildren live in Maryland, so Helen depends on the generosity of friends and neighbors and her caring volunteers from Meals On Wheels to help her complete the daily tasks so many of us take for granted.
For Helen, Meals On Wheels means much more than a nutritious meal. For the past two years, volunteers have delivered peace of mind, a friendly smile and the comfort of knowing that she is not forgotten. We are Meals On Wheels, and this is our story.
