FRAMINGHAM – BayPath Elder Services Nutrition Supervisor Allison Park was a recipient of the 2021 Commonwealth Heroine Award yesterday, June 23. The 18th Annual award ceremony was held virtually.
Park was nominated for the award by State Rep. Maria Robinson.
“Allison Park is a vital member of BayPath Elder Services. As Nutrition Supervisor, Allison ensures that the seniors of MetroWest who are unable to leave their homes receive daily nutritious meals. These meals, delivered by a volunteer who provides a friendly visit and safety check, help keep seniors socially connected while maintaining their independence,” noted the program book.
“Allison’s work for Meals on Wheels is an invaluable service combatting senior hunger and isolation—critical issues that have worsened during the pandemic. We’re fortunate in MetroWest to have such a dedicated and compassionate leader in our community,” wrote Robinson in nominating her.
BayPath Elder Services is located in Marlborough.
