Secretary of Aging Helps with Meals on Wheels Delivery

DICKSON CITY -- The Pennsylvania Secretary of Aging came to Lackawanna County Friday to help with the Meals on Wheels effort and spread awareness about hunger.

Teresa Osborne went along on a Meals on Wheels route in Dickson City, making the deliveries. She wanted to show the positive impact volunteers in organizations like this have in fighting hunger.

"To get to a point in your life where you're struggling to make ends meet, struggling to pay rent, struggling to pay mortgage, struggling to pay your prescriptions medications, and to buy food. It's a tension!" said Osborne.

Besides these deliveries, Osborne also met with other human service organizations in the area to talk about how the state can help in eliminating hunger for senior citizens.
