Durham Regional Police members from across the region joined Community Care Durham (CCD) volunteers today in recognizing Meals on Wheels Week. On October 8, officers helped volunteers deliver meals to members of our local communities.
Meals on Wheels provides nutritious hot and frozen meals to those who have difficulty preparing their own meals because of needs relating to age or physical disability. The service depends heavily on the support of local volunteers dedicated to helping people maintain their independence at home. DRPS is proud to assist with this invaluable community service.
“The Meals on Wheels program is a very important service that contributes greatly to the lives of some of our most vulnerable citizens,” says Chief of Police Mike Ewles. “We are happy to participate in this event in a meaningful way, to honour volunteers and to help give visibility to this important initiative.”
CCD is a multi-service charitable organization that provides Home Support, Respite (Caregiver Relief) and COPE Mental Health services for adults and their caregivers who have needs related to physical disability, aging and/or mental health.
CCD is always looking for community volunteers, for more information please visit www.communitycaredurham.on.ca.
