YMOW volunteer Jackie Reid was approaching senior citizen status herself when she finally realized her dream of earning her bachelor’s degree in nursing. For her final thesis paper, Jackie chose to write about the unmet needs of the senior population – something that has long been a focus for her as a health professional. Today, as a YMOW volunteer and our Volunteer of the Quarter, she’s helping to fill the needs of YMOW clients.
YMOW’s series of First Thursday Food Truck events continues from 5-8 p.m. August 5.
Stop by to enjoy delicious vegan choices from Shimmy Shack and burgers, sandwiches and fries from Good Eats. Grab a coffee, smoothie or pastry from Bearclaw Coffee Co. and a frozen treat from Kona Ice. Music will be provided by local artists Holly Gramlich & Gail Boyd and Ki5 Loops. Special thanks to Old National Bank for sponsoring our August event!
Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, friends and family and settle in for an evening of summer fun, all to benefit Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels.
Mark your calendars for our final Food Truck event on Thursday, Sept. 2!
