Why wait for a phone call to substitute!  Did you know you could call the office and tell them what day you would like to be a driver or rider?  There is a very large calendar that is kept on the sign in table where the office staff will gladly sign you up.  It keeps track of when substitutes are needed.  You can either sign

Hello Volunteer Angels,


We are looking forward to honoring all those who have so willingly volunteered their time and talent and vehicles to deliver meals.  The date and place for the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon has been set!!


The date is Thursday, January 19, 2012 and the place is the new Toyota Museum at 19600 Van Ness in Torrance.  It is a new facility that houses the first car Toyota imported to the United States, the mock ups that their engineers had dreams of making, all the movie cars-such as Batman, and even miniature cars.  We are invited to browse the museum before and after the luncheon.


Toyota's outreach to the community is to provide one building

A Special Thank You to all our Wonderful Volunteers, Generous Donors and Loyal Sponsors


The office is looking for a volunteer willing to take on a project of organizing our supplies and weeding out the items from our kitchen and under our stainless tables.  The kitchen will soon undergo a facelift by Golden West Towers and in anticipation of that it would be good to have our supplies organized.  We currently have several file cabinets, desks, and nooks and crannies full of our “stuff”.  Someone with a keen sense of organizing could make it much more efficient.


My thank list is always long for all of those who do their part to help in any way, but this newsletter I want to thank one of my  volunteers who has left us after 21 years of loyal and dedicated service.  Carolyn Casey, has been a  key phone caller for Tuesday’s for years.  I could always count on Carolyn to have her subs to me every Monday evening no matter what the week would bring to her busy work or home life.  She is a single parent of two amazing daughters who are very active in sports.  She is sending one off to college and plans on being available to travel there.  Margaret Estrada presented her with a certificate for her years of dedication. Carolyn stated that she was thrilled to receive the lovely and thoughtful certificate. It really meant so much to her to be recognized.

Gen Gorciak has been a Torrance Lomita Volunteer since 1976. She is currently responsible for interviewing prospective clients and is our past President.


Being the past president is not a new thing for Gen. She has been the President six times. This certainly suggests she has spent a lot of time on our Board of Directors. As President or Board Member she has been our representative to both Torrance and Lomita
