We would also like to thank the following individuals for their contributions and their time: Laura Murray, Valerie Cook, Jodi Wall, Linda Johnson Stallings, Linda O’Malley, Bob Allen, Al Chianciola, Joey Testaverde, Jason Psalidas, Dottie Chastaine, Kathie and Brendan O’Leary, Maureen (Moe) Gallant, Kathy Hopkins, Barbara Trioli, and Carol Godinho for her donations and for organizing this event.
A very special note of thanks to Donnie Riley and Jodi Wall for their continued support and contributions to the Youth Awareness Program over the years.
All proceeds raised by this event are used to cover direct expenses for the students to present their topics to younger children, travel expenses and scholarships to each student who participates in the program.
It is a great team effort which has made this program a tremendous success.
On behalf of the SeniorCare community, I would like to extend my gratitude to all of those who helped make the 39th Meals on Wheels Valentine Breakfast a record breaking success.
First and foremost, thank you to Lenny and Dottie Linquata and the staff of The Gloucester House. Each Valentine’s Day, the Linquata’s open the doors of The Gloucester House to sponsor this event. Because of their incredible generosity, the full proceeds from the breakfast go to support SeniorCare Meals on Wheels.
Thank you as well to the Gloucester High School Junior ROTC cadets who once again provided invaluable assistance during the event. They are a polite, friendly and capable group of young adults who reflect well upon their school. It is particularly meaningful to have a group of teenagers help at an event that benefits older adults.
Thank you to our sponsors for their generous financial contributions: Associated Home Care who provided an extra measure of support to the breakfast this year as well as a gift for attendees, ABC Professionals, AMRAMP, All Care Resources, Beverly Cooperative Bank, Cape Ann Savings Bank, Cape Ann Transportation Operating Company, Care Giver Homes, Elder Service Plan of the North Shore, First Ipswich Bank, G. Everett Mahoney, Gloucester Police, Glovsky & Glovsky LLC, Gortons, Harborlight Community Partners, Hospice of the North Shore, Liquor Locker, Lucky 7 Arcade, Manchester Police, North Shore Elder Services, Paws for Praise, People’s United Bank, Rockport National Bank, Sidekim Foods, Spectrum ADH, TD Bank, TLC at Home, and United Health Care.
Lastly, a heartfelt thank you to the hundreds of people who attended the breakfast. Your support is greatly appreciated and helps us continue to keep delivering hot, nutritious meals to the doors of older adults in the nine cities and towns SeniorCare serves.
