Mayor Hashmi Volunteers During “March for Meals” Month

March is “March for Meals” month for Meals on Wheels, and during the month of March the schedule includes national “Mayors for Meals” day! The mayor of Paris, Texas Dr. Hashmi, along with Volunteer Coordinator Marvin Wroten, and volunteer from Harvey Properties Brittaney Williams donated their time to deliver meals to the grateful citizens of (The Residences) on Stillhouse Road.  Dr. Hashmi greeted the recipients with a handshake, kind words, and a smile. Our awesome Mayor arrived at 6am at the Meals on Wheels kitchen to help prepare meals before the delivery as well.  We were excited to ride along on the route and see the light in everyone’s eyes after opening the door, especially beautiful Mrs. Marie Lively.

Mayor Hashmi would like to say… “It’s programs like these that make America the best country in the world.”

Marvin Wroten says… “Words can’t express how good this makes me feel.”

Brittaney Williams would like everyone to know… “We have 3 employees at Harvey Properties that deliver, and we enjoy doing this for our community.”

Special Thank you to Meals on Wheels & Tanteta Hilliard for inviting us along for the ride.
