Duter: Sun City volunteers worked hard to deliver meals

When a lot of people are leaving the area to spend summer in a more hospitable climate, the dedicated Sun City Meals on Wheels volunteers come out and show their stuff!

Not only do they dedicate their time and effort on behalf of those who cannot prepare their own meals, they do a much needed daily wellness check on a vulnerable community. 

For almost two year, Sun Valley Lodge, 12415 N. 103rd Ave., has prepared healthy meals for Sun City Meals on Wheels volunteers to deliver. COVID restrictions have meant the volunteers line up their cars seven days per week in the adjacent Presbyterian Church parking lot, 12225 N. 103rd Ave., to wait for the meals to be loaded into their cars for delivery. With the intense summer heat, and high fuel costs, that requires dedication!

I have been honored to serve as the president of this fine group of volunteers for several years now, and I just want to make sure they know just how much I appreciate them!
