Printer makes all the difference

WORK has become a lot more efficient for the volunteers at Meals on Wheels, following some assistance from a fellow organisation.

The Rotary Club of Dalby handed over a cheque fore $990 to the Meals on Wheels team, for the purpose of buying the group a new printer.

Issues with their old printer were causing issues for the non-for-profit group, with many hours being taken up by issues with paper work.

Dalby Meals on Wheels president Jim Buckley, said it was wonderful for community groups to band together.

"This unit will enable our service management team to provide, clear, easy to read colour-coded menus,” Mr Buckley said.

"This furthers the community service in the region when we can band together.”

President of Dalby Rotary Shirley Mellor said funds were raised through raffles and sausage sizzles over several months.

"I was proud to be able to hand over the cheque to be able to purchase this new printer,” she said.

Dalby Meals on Wheels service manager Sari Sihvola said many would not know the amount of printing done by the volunteers.

She said she has noticed a vast improvement in the organisation, due to the new printer.

Dalby Meals on Wheels serves food three times a week.

The group averages 250 meals per week across the region, ranging from cooked to frozen meals.
