We are extremely grateful to community members who assist our neighbors by delivering hot meals. To keep this service affordable, we seek friendly volunteers with 30 minutes to spare, who are able to drive and hand deliver the prepared meals. Each day, the delivering volunteer recieves a complimentary meal in appreciation for their efforts. Contact Deb Copas if you would like to help us with hot meal delivery.

Did you know that Nebraska has the highest incidence of Parkinson’s Disease reported per capita in the world? Parkinson’s (PD) strikes nerve cells in the brain that control muscle movement. People with the disease often experience trembling, muscle rigidity, difficulty walking, problems with balance and slowed movement. One of the earliest symptoms is reported loss of taste and smell. Symptoms usually develop after age 60, but some people are affected before age 50. Michael J. Fox, Muhammad Ali, Billy Graham and Janet Reno have PD. Pope John Paul II and former Nebraska Congressman Peter Hoagland passed away from complications of PD. There is no cure for Parkinson's, but patients can be treated medically for their symptoms.
