Volunteer Spotlight

Fred & Kathy Crittenden

As we are celebrating March for Meals this month, which promotes the importance of Meals on Wheels programs across North America, it only seemed fitting to highlight two of our hardworking MOW delivery drivers; Fred and Kathy Crittenden!

Fred and Kathy are also celebrating one year of volunteering with Unison at Veiner Centre. They were looking for something they could do together that would lend a helping hand to others in need. They feel blessed to be able to help care for others and have become friends with some of the other volunteer drivers.

They would want to learn to speak other languages and would love to live in Maui because of the beautiful weather. They treasure their family most and would like to live a life without pain. Their favourite meal is one they do not have to make. They enjoy 70’s and 80’s music with The Eagles and The Gaithers being particular favourites. They enjoy reading murder mysteries and love John Grisham and James Patterson books. The persons they most admire is their mothers and they try to live by the motto WWJD? What would Jesus do? We are so very thankful to have them as part of our Meals on Wheels team! If you would like to volunteer for MOW in Medicine Hat, please email [email protected]
