Today volunteers from Nowra Bomaderry Meals on Wheels worked together to prepare lunches for 80 local volunteers from the State Emergency Service, Rural Fire Service, NSW Police, NSW Fire and Rescue, Marine Rescue and Surf Life Saving who have been assisting local residents respond to recent floods.
“Volunteers from Meals on Wheels have been in awe of the work of local Emergency Service personnel and we wanted to show our appreciation for the countless hours so many have put in to assisting those in need across the Shoalhaven,” Luke Sikora, Service Manager for Nowra Bomaderry Meals on Wheels said.
“This morning our volunteers did our bit and rolled up our sleeves to prepare meals for 80 Emergency Service workers at the Nowra Emergency Service Centre as our way to say thank you.
“We understand the work local Emergency Service workers, particularly the SES, have put in to ensure the safety of local residents who have been impacted by recent floods. The Shoalhaven community comes together in a crisis and Meals on Wheels is proud to support our Emergency Service workers who give so much.
Meals on Wheels are more than just a meal and we are proud to be part of the Shoalhaven community – Luke Sikora, Service Manager for Nowra Bomaderry Meals on Wheels.
“A particular thanks to Shelly Walker in our Meals on Wheels, Shoalhaven Chef kitchen who worked tirelessly to prepare 80 handmade lunches – she is a gem!
“Meals on Wheels are more than just a meal and we are proud to be part of the Shoalhaven community,” Mr Sikora said.
Nowra Bomaderry Meals on Wheels will continue to support our Emergency Service personnel at the West Nowra Command Centre by supplying lunches for the rest of the week. Meals on Wheels also wishes to thank Coles Nowra who contributed towards the costs of the lunches.
