Mrs. Hill spent her career helping others as a parent educator, counselor and probation services coordinator in Richmond, VA. After many years of public service, she is thankful that she can depend on a community institution like Meals on Wheels to deliver the nutritious meals she needs.
A few years ago, Mrs. Hill lost her husband and her son within a month of each other. Now, a debilitating back injury makes it difficult for her to get out of the house to shop and prepare meals. Despite these hardships, Mrs. Hill stays positive and appreciates the friendly visits and conversations with Meals on Wheels volunteers.
"The service is not just delivering noonday meals, but it's also to provide safety, security and someone to check on you. I was greatly elated at that thoughtfulness."
