Staff Report for Island Eye News
East Cooper Meals on Wheels’ dedicated volunteers stepped up before Hurricane Matthew to support their clients. On the Wednesday before Hurricane Matthew they delivered extra meals and extra water bottles to recipients to make sure that they had necessities such as food and water to make it through the storm.
“With Hurricane Matthew gone from our coast, we want to thank all of our dedicated volunteers, staff and community partners for your continued support,” said Kim Sawyer, Marketing and Communications Manager for ECMOW.
“Hurricane Matthew made us all realize how important access to food, water and shelter is. Many of us may even take those things for granted. These are challenges that we help our recipients with each and every day throughout the year.
“Because of people like you, our recipients did not go without during the storm. This would not have been possible without our passionate volunteers and amazing donors. Your help allows us to provide our community with hot meals, a friendly smile and a safety check, without a wait list, and regardless of age or income, even in times of crisis.”
