Elinor began delivering Mollie’s Meals when a friend asked her to help. They shared driving and deliveries until unfortunately, the other woman became too ill. That didn’t deter Elinor, herself a senior, who has been delivering once a week (sometimes twice!) for the last four years, with and without the help of her husband. A retired school secretary, she also volunteers for her synagogue and other groups. In her capacity with Mollie’s Meals, she and her husband see about 14 people on an average day.
“There are challenges. For instance, many recipients are hard of hearing or have difficulty getting to the door. One woman was very confused. I reported her and she’s now in a nursing home. From my end of it I can’t find anything easier. Everything is prepared and ready to go,” Mollie’s Meals Coordinator Fraida Estrin explained.
Big thanks to the Youngs (who are grandparents, as well). Wishing you many more healthy years as JAA partners!
