Soldiers give back to community

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Soldiers with Hunter's 473rd Quatermaster Company have volunteered with numerous organizations and they recently received a monetary prize for having the best recycling program on base; however, they decided not to keep it for themselves.

"We wanted to give back to the community so we talked to the soldiers and said hey what was the most memorable volunteer work that we did and they said Meals on Wheels," said Cpt. Steve Taylor.

"There are many many seniors that go without a meal everyday and something like this makes a huge difference to our community," said Meals on Wheels Director Tim Lawhorne.

The company presented Senior Citizens, Inc. Meals on Wheels program with a check for $500. The soldiers said they were just so impressed with how the organization helps so many people on a daily basis and they just wanted to do more.
