Meals program relaunched

With the support of the community, the Gabriola Auxiliary for Island Health Care is re-establishing its Meals on Wheels program.

Community involvement in the Gabe Shop, a combination thrift store, gift shop and information centre made way for the return of the program, and the auxiliary is hosting a launch dinner 4:30 p.m. Tuesday (Nov. 20) at the Rollo Seniors Centre.

“Community involvement has allowed the auxiliary to take the lead, but we feel all other organizations or businesses interested in showing their support of seniors and health care programs should consider sending some of their board members or staff to the launch dinner,” said Nancy Nevison, auxiliary president.

“We will be introducing a new way for individuals, organizations and businesses to share the spirit of the season through purchasing gift certificates that could be used for Meals on Wheels, Lifeline Emergency Call Service or at the Gabe Shop until the end of 2013.”
