Oak Knoll Students Volunteer at SAGE Eldercare

Oak Knoll Students Volunteer at SAGE Eldercare

A group of junior and senior students from Oak Knoll School in Summit spent a recent morning delivering meals to clients of SAGE Eldercare’s Meals on Wheels program as part of their annual “Service Day.” The students are becoming a familiar presence at SAGE as this was their eighth year volunteering at the eldercare agency.  The girls were chaperoned and driven by three Oak Knoll faculty members while delivering meals to routes in Springfield, New Providence and Berkeley Heights.  The service project is part of an Outreach Program that takes students out of the classrooms and into the community to serve those in need.

Pitching in for a good cause was left to right: Faculty member, Mr. Jerry Butler, Elizabeth Jacobson, (Branchburg), Elizabeth Sullivan (Mendham), Sarah Butterfield (Bridgewater), Mimi Beck (Short Hills), Jessica Porcelli (Ridgewood), Samantha Tralka (Mendham), and Shannon Ryan (North Caldwell).  Junior, Elizabeth Sullivan, was especially proud to be giving a helping hand, because her grandfather volunteers weekly at SAGE’s Meals on Wheels program.

SAGE, a major community resource for eldercare, delivers Meals on Wheels year round to Berkeley Heights, Millburn, Mountainside, New Providence, Short Hills, Springfield, and Summit.  SAGE is in constant need of volunteers to keep this vital service running smoothly. Meals are delivered Monday through Saturday, from about 11:00 am to 12:30 pm.  Volunteers pick up the food each day at the SAGE headquarters located at 290 Broad Street in Summit.  To learn more about volunteering for Meals on Wheels, or to learn about other volunteer opportunities at SAGE Eldercare, please call Marianne Kranz at 908-598-5514 or email her at   Please visit our website at  to see the latest offerings and news at SAGE.
