Ev­ery con­tri­bu­tion — mone­tary or oth­er­wise — helps to keep things mov­ing along at Meals on Wheels.

Boyertown res­i­dent Brent Har­ris, a re­al­tor with Re-Max Achiev­ers of Col­legevil­lle, knows how es­sen­tial the pro­gram is to those who uti­lize it. He vol­un­teered at the pro­gram about five years ago and said one of the things he en­joyed most about the ex­pe­ri­ence was meet­ing the se­niors and hear­ing their sto­ries.

On Tues­day morn­ing, Feb. 7, Har­ris pre­sented the Boyertown Multi-Ser­vice with a check in the amount of $5,000 to ben­e­fit Meals on Wheels.

“It’s a great thing they do here,” he said. “I couldn’t think of a bet­ter cause than to do­nate money to­wards this.”

Meals on Wheels Case Man­ager Diane Joyce and Multi-Ser-

vice Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Karen Youse ac­cepted the check on be­half of the pro­gram. Youse con­firmed the funds would be used for the des­ig­nated pro­gram.
