United Way Campaign Well Underway at Senior Services


The United Way of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo region (UWBCKR) 2015/16 campaign got underway with a kickoff drive last October 8th. We’re happy to report that we’ve had a great response to this opportunity to help someone in need, save lives, and serve.  


We especially want to thank our United Way Campaign Liaison Jonathan Jackson, Jr. whose presentation at our All Staff Meeting was very well received. Working together with Tauhric Brown, UW Speaker’s Bureau representative and Kathleen Kelleher, United Way Campaign Manager, we have not only reached our goal, but we have already exceeded our goal for this year’s drive.  

Give. Advocate. Volunteer. Together we can accomplish what none of us could achieve alone

Want to make A Difference?

Are you new to the community, or just looking for a great volunteer opportunity? Do you want to meet new friends, brighten someone’s day and feel good about yourself?  We have the answer; become a Meals on Wheels volunteer!

This volunteer opportunity comes with a flexible schedule, and a time commitment of 1.5 to 2 hours, whether it’s once a week, once a month, or however it best fits into your schedule.  And what’s more, you’ll find YOU get a lot out of it, too, like the fact that you are  making a difference, you’re helping someone stay in their home for as long as possible, and you’re greeting them with perhaps the only smile they get all day.  

But don’t just take my word for it, here’s what Tim and Jackie have to say about delivering meals. “All you have to do is drive,” Jackie Peters told her husband, Tim when they were considering delivering meals.  “We can try it,” he told her. “We’re still trying it,” he said, now that they’ve been delivering meals for 6 years, as volunteers with RSVP – Your Invitation to Volunteer. Tim does the driving and Jackie is the hopper – she takes the meal to the door. “I’m a talker,” she said. “I enjoy visiting and I enjoy people. They are happy with their food, a smile and hello, and a few kind words.”

Why not give it a try? Just call 382-0515 and see how easy it is to get started. Meals on Wheels; a small commitment that brings big rewards
