I am very excited to welcome to LifePath’s Meals on Wheels Walkathon staff Carol Foote of Shelburne. Each year, a seasonal staff person joins us to help with the Meals on Wheels Walkathon, the most important way the community steps up to make sure no elder is alone, forgotten, or hungry.
We hit gold when we found Carol. Along with many years of experience in development, Carol is truly a delightful person. A native of Northfield married to a native of Warwick, she has many local connections to friends, family and neighbors.
Most importantly, Carol has a passion for supporting elders in our community. She says, “In my short time here, what I’ve learned about the Meals on Wheels program is that a point is made to nourish people – body, mind, and soul. My perception is that the office walls echo with these questions about our consumers: Are they safe? Are they well? What services can we help them take advantage of? LifePath is genuinely a people-centered organization, which feels great.”
Carol continues, “It is inspiring that last year local businesses and community members rallied around the Meals on Wheels program raising more than $105,000 so that volunteer drivers can deliver 500 meals on the road each day, and the program has no waitlist for our homebound elders to have a hot meal and a wellness check. As we head toward the event date of Saturday, April 28, I’m looking forward to connecting with walkers and sponsors alike and being inspired by your stories.”
