LYNCHBURG, Va. – Volunteers with Meals on Wheels of Greater Lynchburg spent Thanksgiving delivering food to residents.
Each person received two meals: a hot, Thanksgiving dinner and another meal for Friday.
Jace Crockett, director of volunteer operations for Meals on Wheels, said interactions between volunteers and residents is about more than passing a plate.
“Some [residents] just don’t have any family around to take care of them, and during the holiday season, it’s just so important to watch out for our neighbors,” said Crockett.
The organization provided nearly 1,000 meals to 450 recipients.
