Donation may help with senior meal
delivery program expansion to county

By Jeanette Johnson
Staff Writer

WORLAND – Devon Energy recently donated $1,000 to the Worland Senior Center for its home meal delivery program.
Speaking on behalf of the Senior Center, Kitchen Manager and Building Manager Bert Bauer said they are doing research to see if they can expand deliveries of meals outside of the city limits, a goal that’s been on their wish list for quite awhile.
The donation will allow them to purchase hot packs or carriers, she said.
“We’re getting one carrier to be plugged into a vehicle cigarette lighter so if we go outside the city limits we can make sure the meals stay hot,” she explained.
The donation from Devon wasn’t a random thing.
“Devon asked us what we needed,” she said.
In response, employees at the center wrote down their needs. Devon chose from the list what area they wanted to help with, she said.
In an email from the main office, Kelly Pascal Gould said the company is proud to support the home delivery program and cited the number of meals that are made available to homebound seniors.
As a top operator and producer of oil in Wyoming, Devon strives to be a good neighbor by supporting youth and education, civic organizations and emergency responders, Gould said.
Executive Director Wendy Fredricks gathered a group of center workers and volunteers to show the latest acquisition, a carrier to replace one that is worn out.
“(Devon) looks at the community and helps the community as a whole,” Bauer said. “That’s really neat, too.”
