Welcome to The Dish.
Thank you to everyone who participated in Colorado Gives Day! In 24 hours you donated enough to deliver a meal a senior in our community every day for over 6 1/2 years!

But that is not the only excitement, read on to get all of The Dish!

MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY

It was a gorgeous fall this year. The leaves held on and we were rewarded with a few weeks of brilliant color. Once the leaves fell, the timing was perfect for United Way’s “Make A Difference Day” and Meals on Wheels clients’ homes where leaves were piling up. [Read more]

VELMA RETIRES

In 2004 Velma Combers was hired at Meals on Wheels of Loveland and Berthoud. Reflecting back, within 48 hours she said, “I knew I was in the right place. I knew this was where I belonged.”

On a personal note...

With this being my first year at MOW-LB I am constantly blown away by the generosity of our community. The number of people who donated gifts to our Santa for Seniors project is one remarkable example. Of course the willingness of our volunteers to happily deliver all of these wonderful gifts in addition to the meals they deliver every day, is also amazing. In fact, we had so many gifts that reinforcements were needed to get them all wrapped! Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make the program such a success.  

Of course, the staff here are also working on overdrive to ensure that our services remain at the high quality everyone has come to expect. We are still adding new seniors almost every day, and the meals we deliver still are as delicious and nutritious as ever. I have never been a part of a more caring, hard working group of people.  

With that, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a wonderful New Year. I will write again in the new year.

Also, if you enjoy this newsletter why don't you forward it to a friend.

Have a great holiday season!
