Food For Thought East Cooper Meals On Wheels
GEORGE DEPENDS ON YOU FOR MEALS train, and grabbed some tools. Pretending to work on the train by checking the wheels, he exchanged words with a few Germans who stopped by, then snuck back on the train and changed into his civilian clothes for the remainder of the trip.
Now 92 years old, George Sass has faced challenges in his life that most of us can only imagine. Born in Poland, he met his future wife at the age of 15 during a local Sunday dance. While luck was not on their side for many years, fate would bring them back together. George was a hiking guide for tourists in the Pieniny mountain range until he joined the English Army in September of 1939. In November, a letter from his mother shared the unfortunate news that his sister had been killed when German’s bombed the train she was riding to college. He was granted a few days of leave to help his mother grieve and was expected to return to England for deployment but, upon arriving in Poland, the Germans arrested him. George was transported to Munich, where he spent about two years working 10 hour shifts at the BMW factory, which at that time was making engines for German airplanes. He describes life in the barracks as “harsh, to say the least,” with one blanket, one set of clothes, wood and straw for a bed, a dish and a spoon. “Coffee” was made from coal, soup was one piece of beef in water, and there was no dinner. An underground society helped him escape to Vienna, where he boarded a train to Warsaw. He spoke fluent German and was told the train was on a non-stop run, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case. At the German border, about to be discovered for lack of proper papers, George thought on his feet. He quickly changed into his labor clothes, snuck off the
A kind woman and her daughter who were also on the train offered him a room in their home for two years, as he knew no one in Warsaw, but when the Germans invaded that town he was arrested and shipped back to Germany to labor at Magdeburg. This time, he was selected to be an entertainer by joining a group of other displaced persons to play music. George’s instrument was the musical saw, and his group was transported around to various camps to entertain the prisoners. He even remembers being filmed, as the Germans intended to share the video with the Red Cross to demonstrate their kind treatment of all in captivity. His trip to entertain at Osterweddingen, just seven miles away from his own camp, brought more joy than he had felt in years. He immediately recognized his sweetheart, Halina, in the crowd! After not knowing whether she was dead or alive for so long, he vowed to not lose her again. Some sneaking out, along with bribes of tobacco, allowed him to see Halina once a week. She returned the favor of a visit on Christmas Day in 1944, bringing along a sack filled with at least 20 pounds of beef for George and his friends. George says, “I couldn’t believe she carried it the whole seven miles in the snow for me!” Of course, 1945 brought liberation and joy, as well as many tough decisions. George and Halina agreed that they would not return to Poland, instead applying to live in Brazil, Venezuela, New Zealand, France or the United States. They waited for five years, finally receiving word that there was a sponsor for them in America. They got married, went to the American consul to accept the sponsorship, and boarded an Air Force plane with their young son, Jersy. In the United States, they quickly got on their own two feet with an apartment in Patterson, NJ, and a variety
of different jobs—belt buckle maker, gun engraver, nylon factory worker, YMCA leader, and chimney sweep—for George. He and Halina enjoyed weekly walks on Sundays and going to the movies, and they had a second son, Richard, a few years after arriving in the U.S. Both sons grew up to serve in the military during the Korean War and gave Halina and George three grandchildren to enjoy. George retired in 1990 and he and Halina moved to a beautiful home on James Island. He turned the garage into a workshop where he built clocks and he also kept up with his hobby of painting. They made quick friends with their neighbors, who became like a second family to them. Then, a few years later, Halina was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. After going through so much together, George remained committed to being her caretaker. In 2006, it became clear that Halina needed additional care, so she moved into a nursing home in Mount Pleasant. Not wanting to live in their home alone, George sold it and moved into a condo so that he would not be so far away from his wife. One of the workers, concerned about his ability to access a good meal, referred him to East Cooper Meals on Wheels. He has bad vision in one eye, significant hearing loss, suffers from anemia, and sometimes struggles with his balance. He also lives off of Social Security, and with the expenses of health insurance and utilities, he didn’t have the money to go out to eat or buy the most nutritious meals. The daily meals kept him strong enough to visit with Halina until she passed away last year. With his sons living far away and his closest friend living on James Island, the meals are more important now than ever. After all he’s been through George says, “I’m making do with life these days, and Meals on Wheels makes my life a little better. I really enjoy getting to spend some time each day talking to the nice people who bring my meals.”
WILLIAM & DEBORAH WROTE TO SAY THANK YOU Since the summer of 2008, the O’Connells have been counting on Meals on Wheels for their daily lunch. William and Deborah live in a subdivision on Highway 41 and, at 87 and 85 years of age respectively, they couldn’t be more grateful for the meals that our volunteers deliver each day. Cooking and grocery shopping may not be easy for them, but they frequently take the time to write a note of thanks, which shows just how much your support means to them.

2013 ANNUAL REPORT
Letter from the President
ooking back at 2013, the one word we heard most often was change. We know that 10,000 people are turning 65 every single day. We know that people are living longer and they want to remain in their own homes. We know that 8.8
million of our nation’s elderly struggle with hunger.
At our national Meals on Wheels conference in August, Meals on Wheels Association of America President/CEO Ellie Hollander said, “We can’t solve tomorrow’s problems with today’s tools.” We know we must look to the future and ask ourselves what this
450 Recipients F
community will need from East Cooper Meals on Wheels.
ed a Nutritious M
Amid all this change, our focus remains the same – to deliver a nutritious meal to those who cannot drive themselves to the grocery store or stand at the stove long enough to cook their own meal. We will continue to provide the daily visits, which mean so much to our recipients, and also continue to partner with other organizations to meet the
needs that extend beyond our mission. Your support for East Cooper Meals on Wheels allows us to serve people of all ages and incomes so they don’t have to worry about where their next meal will come from. In 2014, we’ll continue to serve our current recipients while assessing our current operations and explore what it will take to meet the needs of our homebound neighbors in the years to come. Because of you, we’re ready and able to serve the next person who calls on us for help this year. Thank you. Best regards,

East Cooper Meals On Wheels
N i b b l es
The community goes above and beyond in its support of East Cooper Meals on Wheels, with many people choosing to donate goods and services in support of our mission. Since September, 92 individuals, and 87 organizations and businesses have contributed in-kind support valued at $45,370. We are especially grateful to Christ Church for preparing, packing and donating all of our weekend meals, as well as to Noisy Oyster Seafood Restaurant for preparing and donating a meal for our recipients once a month. In addition, the following community partners donated at least $200 in food items: Charleston County Aviation Authority Costco Wholesale Createspace Great Harvest Bread Company Kudzu Bakery
O F T H E QUA RT E R
3rd Quarter: Dave & Margaret Graham This couple chose to retire in Mount Pleasant and, though they have only been volunteering with us for a year, they have already made a significant impact at Meals on Wheels. They drive Route G every Thursday and even serve as substitutes when we really need them. They helped us procure numerous auction items for our 2013 gala, and they have both been trained to serve as ambassadors at events throughout the community. Dave even showed off his golf skills at our annual tournament this year, while Margaret helped out as a volunteer at the event. An especially big thank you to Roland and June Richard, their neighbors and fellow volunteers, for encouraging them to become part of the Meals on Wheels family.
Opal Restaurant & Bar Operation Freebird St. Vincent de Paul Society Starbucks Stella Maris Catholic Church The Palms of Mount Pleasant Additional behind-the-scenes support was provided by the following community partners: Awareness: Charleston Home Builders Association Grocery Bags: Publix—Queensborough, Whole Foods Market Pet Food: Banfield Pet Hospital, Charleston Dog Training Club Water Cooler: Appalachian Springs Bottled Water
What Will Your Legacy Be?
4th Quarter: Eddie Truesdale Eddie Truesdale has been a supporter of East Cooper Meals on Wheels since 2004. Though he had to take some time off from volunteering for a few years, he jumped back in with both feet in August! He makes time in his work schedule to drive Route B every Tuesday. He also played in our golf tournament in September and volunteered at our oyster roast in October. On Thanksgiving Day, Eddie allowed the media to follow him on his route, which showed everyone in the Lowcountry just how important Meals on Wheels is to those we serve. Recently, he was the first to tell us about the rolling blackouts occurring due to the extreme cold, and he asked about taking some of our utility blankets along his delivery route in case anyone was in need. Eddie truly has gone the extra mile in the short time that he's been back.
The following East Cooper Meals on Wheels family members have passed away since October 2013. It was an honor to work with each of them and they are deeply missed. Edith Beckham ........................................................... Route 3

South Carolina ranks 10th in the nation for seniors at risk of hunger. Hunger can happen to anyone when circumstances prevent them from driving to the grocery store or standing at the stove long enough to cook a meal. By remembering East Cooper Meals on Wheels in your will, or as a beneficiary of your insurance or pension plan, you’ll be sustaining our efforts to fight hunger in our community for years to come. A meal—and so much more—that’s what your legacy will be. Those seeking to support our mission can also ask that memorials be made to East Cooper Meals on Wheels following their passing. Call George Roberts at (843) 881-9350 for more information.
