Tom McClain is the bus driver for the Milton Activity Center. However, during COVID-19 pandemic he has had to take on other responsibilities after the centers were temporarily closed. In the past few months, Tom has driven a Meals On Wheels route every day because of the shortage of volunteers during the pandemic. He delivers to CHEER clients in Milton, Lincoln, Ellendale and part of the Georgetown area. He also conducts between 25-50 wellness check calls daily to CHEER's homebound clients to make sure they are doing okay. In between all those tasks, Tom helps out in the kitchen with packing homebound meals.
The Milton center director says Tom is "a tremendous help and is the true definition of a professional with the way he conducts himself. He doesn't have 'no' in his vocabulary." Tom has enjoyed serving the seniors in Sussex County since 2007. CHEER thanks him for his 13 years of dedicated service.
