Ken-Ton Meals on Wheels would like to celebrate Thanksgiving by publicly acknowledging the many volunteers who donate their time so those in need in the Village of Kenmore and Town of Tonawanda can receive a home delivered meal.
“The Town of Tonawanda is known as a great place to live, work and play because of the facilities, services and programs we all know and love. But the biggest reason we are such a great town is the heart of our residents. Ken-Ton Meals on Wheels simply could not provide services to our friends and neighbors in need without the time and effort of over two hundred volunteers.” said Dan Wiles, Executive Director of Ken-Ton Meals on Wheels. “The volunteers are the friendly face at the door for many of our neighbors with no family in the area. The volunteers are friends who gather to make the meals, package the meals and deliver the meals while laughing and sharing the joy of giving back. The economic savings we garner from the volunteers is tremendous, but the energy they provide the community is greater. On behalf of the entire staff of Ken-Ton Meals on Wheels, our clients and their families, thank you very much and we hope you all enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving.”
