This award goes to Skerries Meals on Wheels. This group of volunteers has been serving the community of Skerries for over 50 years! They currently ensure the delivery of approximately 750 meals a month. The logistics of getting the right meal to the right person at the right time are smoothly and efficiently handled. Each day requires a team of four volunteer drivers who must all be insured, briefed and Garda vetted. Financial contributions from the recipients must be collected, recorded and banked. It is a huge undertaking and it happens five days a week, all year round!
Moreover, the group was able to maintain this valuable service throughout Covid-19, complying with all restrictions.
Congratulations to Skerries Meals on Wheels and a huge thank you for all your dedication and commitment!
