The 12th Annual March for Meals campaign has been held by New Opportunities. Newtown State Representative Mitch Bolinsky served as a volunteer driver for Meals on Wheels as part of the program that gives area residents an opportunity to support their senior neighbors.
Bolinsky called it a heart-warming experience seeing how volunteers go beyond providing for clients nutritional well being. He says these volunteers play a critical role in the lives of their clients.
Legislation is pending at the state capital on rate reimbursement to help local Meals on Wheels programs.
