Spreading Christmas Joy - Douglas D

At 82 years old, Gloria lives in the home she and her husband purchased together almost 40 years ago. After her husband passed away last year, her children were concerned. They had moved out of the area; the closest one living five hours away. Where Gloria used to enjoy cooking from scratch for her family, she now finds it difficult navigating her kitchen with a walker. She tires easily and her arthritis adds an extra insult to her efforts. Was it time for her to move into an assisted living facility? The family calculated the expense while Gloria added in a sprinkle of anxiety and a dash of depression. She wasn’t ready to leave her home. She just needed help receiving nutritious, daily meals. Enter the Meals on Wheels program at Benzie Senior Resources. The answer came in a blue and white 2018 Subaru named Subie-Doo. Now, Gloria receives hot meals, Monday through Friday delivered to her door by Subie-Doo and her volunteer drivers. Gloria’s children know these trusted volunteers will be sure to check in on their mom and report any concerns. And every Christmas season, Subie-Doo and her volunteers venture out into the community to share the love and spread the word about Meals on Wheels. How? By collecting enough donated items to fill 200 Christmas Gift Bags delivered to homebound seniors in Benzie County. This year, Subie-Doo outdid herself! She filled up with donated food and supplies so fast at the local Shop-n-Save grocery store that the volunteers had to make several trips to collect all the donated items! At her own Share the Love Event at Serra Subaru in Traverse City, Subie-Doo donned balloons and stood proudly outside the dealership all day while countless folks stopped by to say hello, check out what this Share the Love stuff was all about and donate more items for the gift bags.

Cowell Family Cancer Center - Kathy L

Serra Subaru. Mike McFarlan. October 24, 2019 Dear Mike, Over the last few years, on behalf of Serra Subaru’s ‘LOVES TO CARE’ program and collaboration with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the Cowell Family Cancer Center has been the recipient of about 50 beautiful blankets each year provided through the ‘LOVES TO CARE” program. Cowell Family Cancer Center then distributes these blankets to new and returning cancer patients who bravely walk through our doors every day. Through eager expressions of gratitude, or quiet repose, we recognize in our patients the comfort and appreciation of a blanket’s soft touch draped around shoulders, resting across a lap or cleverly folded as a pillow in a waiting room. Families often share in the delight of these gifts, gathered for a picnic or snuggled together at a sports event. These blankets serve as touching reminders to our patients they are remembered and cared for as they navigate through their treatment journey. In addition, the inspirational notes included with the blanket are heartfelt. Our healthcare team here at CFCC graciously gives thanks to Serra Subaru’s and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s generous community giving and support that combines with our purpose of improving lives for the patients we serve every day. Kind Regards, Kathy LaRaia, MS Executive Director, Oncology Services Munson Healthcare

No matter their age or situation, we have professional, reliable services to help keep Benzie seniors living independently – with dignity – in their own homes.The annual Walk-A-Thon, BSR’s major fundraiser, is a morning of friendship, caring and giving to support Benzie seniors. A combination of businesses, teams and individuals work together to help BSR raise funds allowing them to continue providing all services without waiting lists. In order to raise awareness, two of our outstanding volunteers, Lynn and Judy took our awarded Subie-Doo down to the Frankfort Family Fare Store and helped to sell paper shoes for HOURS and promoting our upcoming Walk-a-Thon fundraiser on August 4th! Lynn, Judy & Subie-Doo raised just under $400 that day selling paper shoes. Every dollar raised helps Benzie Senior Resources provide exceptional services, resources and trusted care to support Benzie seniors. The Benzie Community recognizes the Meals on Wheels Subaru for its sole purpose of delivering meals to those seniors in need of a hot and nutritious meal and the response from our community friends is phenomenal. A special thank you to Subaru of America, Meals on Wheels America and Frankfort's Family Fare for allowing Judy, Lynn and Subie-Doo to hang out at their store!
