Last week, the Bernard Betel Centre halted all CAA deliveries as CAA South Central Ontario returns to their regular services. Our partnership with CAA started on April 7, and over the last 9 weeks, their objective to assist community agencies across the GTA in the delivery of vital food and supplies had been inspirational, and an incredible support to our Meals on Wheels team. CAA provided 24 delivery days and delivered hundreds of meals to over 200 of our Meals on Wheels clients.
It was an absolute pleasure working with the CAA team. The first few weeks of the pandemic were the most difficult for the Bernard Betel Centre, while we navigated the change, and CAA helped fill the gaps in our Meals on Wheels program and get us through this challenging time. As requests for our Meals on Wheels services grew during the pandemic, having the CAA team there to assist, allowed us to meet the needs of the community.
THANK YOU to the entire team who helped make this initiative a great success, we hope that we can work together again in the future. Each time we see a CAA truck on the road, we will think fondly of you.
