MORRISTOWN, NJ -  Robert Lecky of Morristown was one of SAGE Eldercare's volunteers that were honored at their annual luncheon.

“Volunteers are instrumental in helping SAGE carry out its mission to maintain the safety and independence of older adults and to support their families and caregivers,” said SAGE Executive Director Angela Sullivan.

Lecky has been a Meals on Wheels volunteer for two years. According to the organization, more than 300 volunteers help each year with everything from assisting with SAGES’s Spend-A-Day program and delivering Meals on Wheels and grocery shopping to volunteering at the Furniture Workshop and helping in the office.

“All of our volunteers are bettering the lives of our older neighbors,” Marianne Kranz said. “Meals on Wheels is not just a food delivery service; it cures loneliness and gives people hope. It saves lives. The Furniture Restoration Workshop fixes family heirlooms and contributed $84,000 to SAGE programs last year. Spend-A-Day volunteers are there for program participants and their families during very vulnerable times. These small, or sometimes very large, acts of kindness are the most important thing we can share with the community and potential donors to ensure they understand the importance of our mission, to make sure the older adults we serve remain as safe and happy and healthy as possible.”
