ABC9 kicks off Founder’s Day of Caring by volunteering with Meals on Wheels

Local News

Members of the ABC9 staff headed out to start off their Founder’s Day volunteering weekend.  Founder’s Day is a celebration of ABC9’s parent company Nexstar being on air for 20 years.

The volunteering began with Meals on Wheels, with several team members from ABC9 delivering meals to those who are not able to prepare a hot meal for themselves.

Lukas and Scott stopped at one home today and met a client who has been receiving Meals on Wheels for three years now.

“I think it’s cool because a lot of people don’t realize that shut-ins like to see a new friendly face, and it helps make their day if they can see one other person.”

ABC9 is not only helping to deliver meals, but also meet and talk with the people getting the deliveries to in order to hopefully brighten someone’s day and give back to the community that gives so much to us. 

If you’re interested in volunteering for Meals on Wheels, you can deliver as many or as few days as you’d like. Call Stan Wisnieski at 800-432-9209. Meal delivery takes about an hour, just before lunch.
