Building Bonds Through Service: The Power of Companionship

Tahra Diggs has been a dedicated volunteer with Cabarrus Meals on Wheels for an impressive 10 years. She finds fulfillment in assisting those in need and cherishes the opportunity to form lasting friendships while providing companionship to the clients on her delivery route, brightening their days with each visit.

The heartfelt connections Tahra has formed with our clients keep her motivated. Knowing that her visits bring smiles and comfort to those who may feel lonely fuels her commitment. For Tahra, community means family, and she extends her care to our clients as if they were her own kin. By offering her time, attention, and companionship, she enriches their lives in meaningful ways.

Tahra homeschools her son, allowing him to join her on deliveries. Volunteering together has imparted valuable lessons about gratitude and compassion, teaching him the importance of helping others and fostering a spirit of kindness and empathy. Tahra encourages prospective volunteers to reflect on their blessings and consider extending a helping hand to those in need, believing that answering this call to service brings immense fulfillment.

One particularly touching memory for Tahra involves a client who always greeted her with treats for her son and stories from her past. This client loved reminiscing, and Tahra made sure to stay a little longer to listen, providing the social interaction our client needed. Tahra treasured these moments, knowing she was offering companionship to someone who deeply appreciated her company.

Tahra generously dedicates her time on a weekly basis to serving her community, volunteering individually and with her son in tow, and making personal connections with each of the clients she has the chance to serve.

For many clients, the delivery volunteer from Cabarrus Meals on Wheels may be the only person they see all day. This brief interaction provides a quick wellness check and allows our aging neighbors to stay in their homes, where they truly want to be, rather than moving into a senior care facility. Your visit can make a profound difference in their lives by offering companionship and ensuring their well-being. If you’re looking for a meaningful way to give back, consider getting involved today and becoming a volunteer.
