This Edition: 

Grow a Row for Meals on Wheels


Do you enjoy growing your own vegetables? Why not consider planting an extra row for Meals on Wheels! Having our very own Tender Loving Care Kitchen means we can accept local, fresh food donations for our Meals on Wheels and Community Dining programs. Grow a Row encourages local gardeners to donate a portion of their homegrown vegetables to our kitchen, allowing us to offer a variety of local, nutrient-filled ingredients on the menu for our clients, while keeping costs down. For more information about Grow a Row, please click here to visit our new Food Donations page on CSC's website or call 519-772-8787 and ask for a member of the Meals on Wheels Team.

Passion for Shopping? How You Can Help

Jim is a volunteer shopper who has been matched with soon to be 80-year-old Joyce for over a year. Jim picks Joyce up once every two weeks to take her to the grocery store and is there to help until she's ready to head back home. 

"He is such a nice gentleman, and so helpful," she says. "He is excellent."

Because of volunteers like Jim, Joyce is able to live at home with independence and dignity. Joyce is so grateful to Jim and the responsive services at CSC that help her get to the important places she needs to be. 

"CSC is one of the best organizations you can get involved with," Joyce says. 

Shopping is our Feature Volunteer Opportunity for May with flexible time commitments to suit a variety of schedules! Escorted shopping volunteers drive clients to and from the grocery store, help pick up items and can help put groceries away once back at the client's home. List shopping volunteers pick a list up from the client's home, purchase the items, take them to the client's home and may also help put the groceries away.

Apply online at http://communitysupportconnections.org/volunteer/ or call our office at 519-772-8787 and ask to speak to a member of the Volunteer Team.
