Comforts of Christmas

Published on | 1 Comment
In December 2012, MDE partnered with Meals on Wheels to “adopt’ some seniors in our community for the holiday season.

MDE got in touch with the Meals on Wheels Program to gain some insight on those who could benefit from the holiday cheer the most. Then MDE staff members set to work creating “Comforts of Christmas” baskets. These baskets were filled with food items, pyjamas, socks, slippers, hats, gloves, throw blankets, gift certificates for Meals on Wheels, candy and other special treats.

The baskets were delivered a few days before Christmas to some very grateful people. MDE fundraising committee co-chair, Corri Erickson says, “We wanted to give back to our community, to remind these seniors that we are thinking of them this holiday season.

What a lovely idea-Very nice and thoughtful! My husband and I volunteered and helped with Meals on Wheels, in Glace Bay, a few years ago. Rewarding to help others! Way to go MDE crew!
