Our program has been growing so rapidly that each of our 4 delivery. vans has to place 30 to 35 meals inside the heating and retrigeration unti which has a capacity of 20 meals. Since the vans have been so overloaded, we have not been able to reach out into the outlying areas of Salt Lake County. At the present time we have a waiting list in the Granger area and plan on starting deliveries in that area in the very near future. From donated funds we will purchase another van and start going into the Granger area as soon as possible. From 12 meals a day being delivered in 1967, we are now averaging approximately 180 meals each day.

FRIENDLY VISITORS is a program whereby dedicated volunteers make personal calls at the homes of ill and homebound Senior Citizens who have expressed a desire to have someone call on them for a chat, write letters, read to them or just listen sympathetically. This program has expanded so rapidly that we find ourselves in the position of having more Friendly Visitors than visitees to call on—and we never though this would happen! If anyone knows of a Senior Citizen who is ill, homebound, doesn’t have a family, let us know. All the information we need is their name, address, phone number, age, a little about their physical condition, and if they want a Friendly Visitor. This information can be phoned or sent to Friendly Visitors at 156 Westminster Avenue, phone 466-6043 or 484-4821. Training Workshops for volunteer Friendly Visitors are held at night as well as daytime sessions, and since we have so many people waiting to complete the Training Workshops, we need Senior Citizens for them to visit. We feel there are a great many Senior Citizens in our valley who would like a personal call, but haven’t been able to reach them to tell of the Friendly Visitor service available to them.
