March for Meals set for Saturday
MARCHING TO HELP MEALS: Trumbull Mobile Meals will host their annual March for Meals from 8 to 9:15 a.m. Saturday at the Eastwood Mall volunteer booth in the JCPenney / Target concourse. Registration is 7:45 to 8:15 a.m. Proceeds from the event will benefit Mobile Meals. Each walker is asked to get a minimum donation of $5 for the event. Prizes will be awarded. Those planning to participate are asked to call 330-394-2538 by Monday.
TMM RECEIVES DONATION: Trumbull Mobile Meals, 323 E. Market St., Warren, recently received a $2,000 check at Boardman Subaru as its share of the proceeds from the Subarau of America “Share the Love” promotion.
TMM qualified to receive the money because it is a member of the Meals on Wheels Association of America, one of Subarau’s chosen charities. TMM said it will use the money to purchase electric, insulated delivery bags that keep foods at a constant hot temperature.
During the “Share the Love” event, Subarau donated $250 to the owner’s chosen five different charities for each vehicle sold or leased.
The salespeople from Boardman Subarau and TMM volunteered and delivered meals to the homebound, ill, frail and physically disabled members of the community.
DISCUSSION ON DEALING WITH THREATS: The Mahoning County District Board of Health will sponsor “Active Shooter / Threats: Civilian Response in the Workplace, Schools and other Places” from 9 to 11 a.m. Friday at McMahon Hall, Mill Creek Metroparks Farm, 7574 Columbiana Canfield Road. The discussion will be on what individuals, who are not law enforcement, can do to prepare themselves and address shooting threats that have occurred in schools, work places and public locations.
To register, call 330-270-2855, Ext. 136 by Monday.
