Summit Fire Department Chief Eric Evers, Battalion Chief Clint Evers, Firefight Chris Esposito, Firefighter Lonn Mullen and Lieutenant Ken Jenks recently helped SAGE Eldercare deliver hot meals to elderly area citizen's a part of SAGE's Meal on Wheels, a program established in 1966, making it the oldest continuously-run, home delivery meal program in New Jersey.
Last year alone, approximately 300 volunteers delivered more than 47,000 meals to 232 people in Union County (Summit, Berkeley Heights, Mountainside, New Providence and Springfield), Essex County (Millburn and Short Hills), and Morris County (Chatham and Madison).
Of note, Mullen was the 65th volunteer in the 'March for Meals' initiative, a national effort which SAGE has participated in for the past 17 years and which uses elected officials and public safety leaders, among others, to help raise awareness of the year-long Meals on Wheels initiative. SAGE is currently celebrating its 65th years of "helping to make the communities it serves amazing places to age," providing a wide array of information, support, and services designed to help individuals lead the most independent and active lives possible, from helping with errands, to exercise classes, community programs, care planning, and home health care.
