Being a Meals on Wheels volunteer is an inspirational way to give back


I have thoroughly enjoyed my three months at the Meals on Wheels volunteer job. I volunteer once a week. I pick up the meals, averaging 10-13 meals, at 11 a.m., and deliver them to the seniors, placing them on a chair or table outside the home. The seniors will open the door once I ring the bell, but they are very cautious and practice social distancing. It is an excellent way to give back to a group of people that need us even more than before this pandemic. 


Folks like Ms. Allison, age 100, and Ms. Donna, age 96 (names have been changed), are very inspirational and appreciate my volunteering. Mr. Tony tells me every Friday I make his day just saying hello. I get more out of this job than I give to the residents. I love to see the smiles on their faces. Please consider signing up to volunteer. So many volunteers have moved north, and the Kane Center Meals on Wheels needs community help in Martin County. It may help even to be a substitute. Please spread the word with family and friends and call Curletha Campbell, 772-223-7829, or email ccampbell@kanecenter.org.

Supporting the leadership that Improves

Public Safety and our Nation

We, as a nation, are entering unchartered waters, for maintaining public safety and preserving our Constitutional Republic!

We have seen the city council of Minneapolis, MN vote to ABOLISH the police department by a vote of 9-0, led by a radical council member, Mr. Jeremiah Ellison.

We have witnessed the mayors of New York City and Seattle taking away the tools that police officers
need to maintain safety for the public and themselves!

For political expediency, cow towing to the rioters, thieves, and vandals in the streets, the Mayors of New York, Washington, and Seattle have tolerated the destruction of public and private property.

There lack of leadership for consequences of unlawful crimes against their citizens has further emboldened the perpetrators, allowing for loss of many lives in some cases!

The attempted crimes and commission of serious crimes against innocent citizens has skyrocketed during this time of unrest!

If we are to maintain our nation as a civilized country there must be a leadership change of those chosen politicians that took their Oath of office that have abdicated their responsibilities for political expediency.

They remain a threat to our safety and maintaining our Republic.
