DERBY - Valley area seniors will continue to enjoy a daily delivery of Meals on Wheels along with weekly homemaking services thanks to a grant from the Hewitt Foundation. This $65,000 grant was recently awarded to TEAM, Inc for Senior Services.
“The Hewitt Foundation is a fabulous resource for our elderly service programs and allows TEAM to stretch and reach beyond what would be possible with federal and state budget cuts. We can’t thank Hewitt Foundation enough for their support of this critical community service,” said TEAM President and CEO Richard Knoll.
"Every day, frail and isolated seniors are provided a lifeline with a nutritious meal and housekeeping assistance,” said Suzanne Reilly, Director of Family Support Services.
“The Hewitt Grant allows for the continuation of programs for Valley seniors who will be impacted by budget cuts. These services allow our seniors to remain independent and healthy.”
Meals on Wheels delivers a daily meal to home-bound elderly residents. TEAM’s four drivers deliver over 200 meals each day throughout the Valley.
