meals on wheels

Matthew Chapter 25 Vs. 35. 

"For I was hungry, and you gave me food. "

On Sunday April 16th our church was blessed to have Cathy Guidry from Pender County Senior Center speak to our congregation about the Meals on Wheels program and how our Church can help with this very important program. As she explained - a knock at the door might not seem like a big deal to many of us. But, to a homebound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and care that will completely make their day. A knock from Meals on Wheels can even save lives. 

The Meals on Wheels program is only funded for delivery of meals to homebound seniors Monday through Friday. There are approximately 30 seniors in Eastern Pender County who are homebound, unable to cook for themselves, and have no way to get their nutritional needs met on the weekend. Topsail Presbyterian Church has been asked to participate in this program.  We will prepare, pack and deliver meals the third Saturday of the month to those Seniors who need our help. Our day would start around 8 am to prepare the meals. We should have the meals prepared, packed and ready to be delivered by 10:00- 10:30.  With all hands on we can accomplish this in no time. 

Thank you to those who have signed up to help. If you would like to volunteer click here. If you have any questions or would love to be a part of this project please let Kathy Tobin, Chair of the Mission Committee know by calling her at 401-309-9563 or emailing:

*** Update !!! *** 

On Saturday, July 15th we kicked off our Meals on Wheels program!  It was a great success and all the recipients were very grateful for the meal we provided.  See below for a few pictures from our fun and rewarding morning.
