OnFocus – On Sunday, December 13 from 11:00am-2:00pm, Marshfield nonprofit Home Delivered Meals will be collecting hard candies, candles, cocoa, decks of cards, boxes of tissues, ornaments, socks, stretchy gloves, hand soap, and lotion this weekend at the former Office Max building (on North Central Avenue by Festival Foods).

Donated items will be wrapped and gifted to meal recipients who are homebound during the holidays.

Drivers are always needed to help fulfill the Home Delivered Meals Program mission, which is “to improve the health and well-being of homebound individuals in the Marshfield community through the daily delivery of hot, nutritious meals.”

Volunteers collect hot meals from the Saint Joseph’s Hospital kitchen and then deliver the meals directly to the homes of program participants.

During each delivery, volunteers conduct a quick wellness check and collect empty tray from the previous day’s meal delivery. At the end of the route, volunteers return empty trays to the hospital and communicate any concerns about a participants’ welfare.

The gift collection, “Silver Sparks: Giving a Glow Of Warmth and Kindness” is a way to pay it forward.

Donations can be also be dropped off at the Marshfield Area United Way during their open hours.
