Sudbury Wolves Head Coach David Matsos and Associate Coach Drake Berehowsky participated in March for Meals Week last week in support of Meals on Wheels. The coaches helped deliver hot meals to local seniors for three days with the help of a volunteer.
“Meals on Wheels is such a great cause and it was a tremendous experience for Drake and I to participate in,” said Sudbury Wolves Head Coach David Matsos. “We were amazed to see volunteers and support from all ages. Everyone was extremely friendly and it only takes two hours of your day to volunteer,” he added.
March for Meals Week is a North American wide campaign that began 45 years ago. The campaign was created to involve prominent members of communities with Meals On Wheels agencies to raise awareness regarding seniors’ nutrition and the need for local action to ensure this valuable life line continues. During this week, Meals On Wheels (Sudbury) called on the help of local community figures to assist us with our hot meal delivery.
“It was wonderful to have the assistance of Dave and Drake for not only one day, but several days,” said Samantha Hunter, Coordinator of Financial Services. “We know our clients were very surprised and happy to have the special guests deliver their meals. A few clients called our office to say what a wonderful surprise it was and how it made their day,” she added. “ Meals On Wheels (Sudbury) often tells people who ask about our services, that sometimes the volunteers may be the only individual a client sees in a day. Our amazing volunteers deliver not only a hot meal, but a smile and a hello to brighten their day.”
