Director Damminger said, “Giving a few hours a week of your time can really help improve the lives of so many.  Our Serv-A-Tray program provides nutritious meals to homebound seniors and residents.  This is a volunteering opportunity to help in the kitchen to prepare and package the meals that mean so much to those who receive them.”
