Meals on Wheels van found

Submitted By Dan Ashbrook

One of the vehicles used by Bay Area Community Services' Meals on Wheels program to deliver meals to homebound seniors was stolen on July 29, in the 3800 block of Fruitvale St. around 11:15 a.m. On August 10, residents of Hayward reported an abandoned vehicle off of Tennyson Road. Officer Sharrock and White of the Hayward Police Department recovered the stolen vehicle. The vehicle is just one of 12 that deliver nutritious meals to over 550 homebound seniors in Oakland each week.

During the two week period that the vehicle was missing, the hardworking staff and dedicated volunteers of BACS' Meals on Wheels ensured that there was not an interruption of service by using their personal vehicles. BACS would like to thank the citizens of Hayward that found the vehicle, and Office Sharrock and Officer White for recovering the vehicle.

The BACS Meals on Wheels program depends on donations, county funding, and volunteers to run this critically needed program that delivers more than 100,000 meals each year. Information about volunteering and donating to Meals on Wheels is available by calling 510-986-8900 extension 2200 or going to
