Monarch staff members help neighbor in need

people helping people2Temekia Terry and Helen Quick, development specialists at the Mallard Lane Home in Rockingham, provided help to ensure a neighbor in need stayed warm.

When picking up meals to deliver for Meals on Wheels, recently, the meal site director asked the ladies if they knew anyone who had an extra heater because one of the meal recipients on the Ellerbe route had very little heat. Terry and Quick, who accompanied a person supported with meal deliveries, noticed one of the seniors was heavily bundled. As winter weather often drops to dangerously low temperatures, especially at night, these ladies refused to allow the woman to remain cold. The ladies combined their resources and purchased a heater for their neighbor in need, who was overwhelmed by their generosity.

“I must say how proud I am to know and work with these two ladies,” said Melissa Hall, regional director – Region 3, who read the thank you note the lady wrote to Terry and Quick. “This act of kindness shows what wonderful and caring ladies they are. Their only comment was that they couldn't let her remain cold and not try to help in some way.”
