Kindergarten and first-grade students at The Harley School recently presented nearly 100 valentines they created to Meals on Wheels representatives during a student assembly.
Students at The Harley School have created valentines for Meals on Wheels for nearly a decade.
The collected valentines were distributed among recipients in the days leading up to Valentine’s Day. As part of the assembly, school officials explained the significance of the valentines to program recipients. Students then sang “A Gift from the Heart.”
Founded in 1917, The Harley School is an independent school on Clover Street in Rochester. It offers a college preparatory program for 500 students ages 3 through 12th grade.
Meals On Wheels is a program of UR Medicine Home Care. Visiting Nurse Service established the local program in 1958, the third oldest in the U.S. The program ensures that over 1,400 individuals throughout the year receive safety checks during the day, and delivers approximately 250,000 meals per year. All meals are overseen by a registered dietician, and contain one-third of a senior’s daily recommended dietary allowances.
