Meals on Wheels ready for takeoff

May 2, 2014
Sheila Geraghty, left, and Shiela Kielly, both of Marshalltown, are shown preparing to disembark from Marshalltown Medical and Surgical Center Wednesday to deliver meals to area residents as part of the local “Meals on Wheels” program. Kielly recently announced her retirement from the organization’s board of directors after serving six years.
“Shiela has helped us as a director, and we will miss her,” said Abby Kersbergen, president. “However, we are pleased she will remain as a volunteer driver.”
Geraghty has been volunteer for four years. The two said they deliver meals four to six times a month depending on the schedule. Both said they like the flexible schedule and the opportunity to help others.
“We are the only personal contact some of our clients have,” said Kielly. For more information, or to volunteer, contact Iowa Home Care, 641-752-5545.
