Durham Regional Police members from across the region joined Community Care Durham (CCD) volunteers on October 7 & 8 in recognizing Meals on Wheels Week. 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.
“This is the third year that I’ve gone out to deliver meals with CCD,” said Cst. Darryl Rice. “I’m happy to work alongside the dedicated volunteers and help promote such an important program.”
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.
