On December 8, volunteers from BAYADA Massachusetts service offices prepared and served a hot, nutritious lunch for a group of senior citizens.
Through a partnership with EcoMediaCBS and the Meals on Wheels Association of America, BAYADA is supporting the Massachusetts Emergency Relief Program to ensure seniors have access to nutritious, shelf-stable meals in the event of inclement weather or natural disasters. BAYADA provided financial assistance to six Meals on Wheels Association member organizations in the Commonwealth which will support emergency relief and meal distribution programs. This funding will provide nearly 8,500 meals to more than 2,000 seniors.
More than a dozen volunteers served lunch to seniors at the Beech Street Center in Belmont, MA, which partners with one of the Meals on Wheels Association members—Springwell, Inc.
"We were thrilled to be able to put The BAYADA Way into action and provide community service where we live and work," said Maureen Hixon, BAYADA regional director in Massachusetts. "It was heartwarming to see the seniors enjoy a delicious meal and camaraderie with their peers—especially at this time of the year."
