Spire volunteers prepare and deliver meals to seniors in Montgomery
Spire employees prepared and delivered meals to seniors in partnership with the Montgomery Area Council on Aging (MACOA) Meals on Wheels program.
“The Montgomery Area Council on Aging is committed to feeding 416 senior citizens a hot lunch each weekday,” said Traci Herndon MACOA volunteer coordinator. “And we have more than 200 seniors on our waiting list. In order to meet our commitment and increase the number of people we can help, we rely on community volunteers like Spire to help us.”
MACOA volunteers deliver lunches to homebound seniors who are unable to prepare their own meals. It’s also an opportunity for volunteers to check the recipients’ welfare.
