Impacting our Neighbors at Meals-on-Wheels

United Way Agency, Mid-Cumberland Human Resource Agency, recently shared this poem with us written by one of their clients for the Meals-on-Wheels program. We wanted to share it with you so you could see how much your support of United Way of Sumner County means to those directly benefitting from our partner agencies' work!

The Giver of Happiness

It is a very wonderful moment
So much joy which one feels
when comes the volunteer
bringing the Meals-on-Wheels.

So much happiness is given
to we who are in our lonely space.
How delightful the aroma, the delicious meal
the smile on the volunteer's face.

How comforting the feeling
of consuming all we need to hold.
How wonderful, the heavenly bliss
of being fed completely
heart, mind, body, and soul.

We so gratefully smile
as we think of the sponsors of our happiness.
We give you thanks with all our heart.
You are the very best.
