Malmstrom Air Force Base Volunteers With Meals On Wheels

Posted: Updated:

Meals on Wheels was on a mission today to ensure no one was alone or hungry on Thanksgiving.

I was at the Great Falls Community Food Bank this morning as volunteers from Malmstrom Air Force Base put together and delivered close to four hundred holiday feasts to some deserving senior citizens around Great Falls.

One of the Malmstrom Air Force volunteers, who was deemed the woman in charge of Thanksgiving, shared her reason for helping out in the busy kitchen.

"Everyone is always so happy and joyful to give back on Thanksgiving. It helps out especially being military because we are away from our families on Thanksgiving, so since we can't be with our families we can spend it giving back to others," said Kristina Chroback, the Meals on Wheels POC.

Next I met the Crandall family when they arrived to pick up some of the meals they were delivering to community members in need. They explained why they wanted to spend Thanksgiving helping others.

"Last year Sherri was deployed so me this is why I wanted to do it. I wanted to do something with the family and have all of us together. That was my main driving factor and I know she has done it previously," said Collin Crandall.

"Yeah I had done it the year before and helped out in the kitchen. This time I actually wanted to go out and deliver the meals. I wanted to take the kids so they could see what it is like to volunteer and help out," said Sherri Crandall.

Next it was off to share the food.

I tagged along with Collin, Sherri and their two kids, Cody and Natalie, as they made their deliveries.

The family was especially moved by the sweet woman who greeted them at the last delivery.

Collin Crandall added, "It was great. It was nice to see the last home we were in. She invited us in and wanted to share a bit of her story like her struggles with her husband and everything. Its nice to hear that and hope that we touched someone's life today."

A touching moment the family was able to share on this day of thanks.

    ENTIAT, Wash. - A burn out operation is planned for Tuesday morning in an effort to establish a secure line in the bottom of the canyon where the Mills Canyon Fire is burning. Burning material rolling downhill and igniting spot fires on the north side of Swakane Canyon have caused concerns and indicate a vulnerability to a fire escape and repeatedly expose firefighters to very steep terrain and rolling material.
