March for Meals Champions
During the entire month of March, Berks Encore and its community partners celebrate March for Meals by recognizing the extraordinary work of the hundreds of volunteers who make this program possible for our homebound neighbors. Each of the six Berks Encore Centers selects a Meals on Wheels Champion to be recognized during a special celebration during Meals on Wheels Champions Week, March 16-20, 2020.
This year a special event will take place on Wednesday March 18, 2020 from 9 am – 12 noon at the Berks Encore Reading Center, 40 N. 9th St., Reading. A live radio broadcast will take place with WEEU. Special guest for the event will be Ellie Hollander, President of Meals on Wheels America. We are honored to have her join us as we recognize our volunteer champions.
During March for Meals we encourage new volunteers to participate in the Meals On Wheels program, a vital community service that provides meals to more than 600 homebound seniors in Berks County each weekday. To find out how you can help, please contact Rita Phillips, Director of Volunteers or call (610) 374-3195, x225.
