Pilot Club Makes Donation to Meal-A-Day
Pilot Club of Sulphur Springs recently made their annual donation to the Meal-A-Day program. Projects Coordinator Becky Potts presented the $300 check to Karon Weatherman, Meal-A-Day coordinator. Those present for the donation included Pilots Brenda Monroe, Beverley Owens, Becky Potts, Meal-A-Day representatives Karen Weatherman and Carol Ann Dixon, Pilots Marilyn Holt, President, and Debra Miller.
Karon Weatherman noted the donation came at a great time and will help cover the daily fee for a new participant who signed up this past week and cannot afford the $2 daily meal fee. There are several participants that cannot afford the $2 daily fee but they are not denied service. If someone would like to sponsor such a participant for one year, the donation would be $520 which is $2 a day, 5 days a week for 52 weeks.
Here is some information from Meal-A-Day coordinator Karon Weatherman:
We have several openings on each of our 6 delivery routes.
