Congressman Jim Himes volunteered for TEAM Inc. by delivering Meals on Wheels to Shelton elderly residents who are homebound.

“TEAM has done remarkable work providing important services to Connecticut families and individuals who are the most in need of assistance, and I look forward to working with them again in the future,” Himes said.

TEAM President Richard Knoll said that the Meals on Wheels program is critical to permitting seniors to live at home as long as possible.
