MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY • EABEIS MELPIHG OTIEIS Big wheels deliver W HEN JOHN F. KENNEDY needed a nickel for a phone call during a campaign stop in Chelsea, Mass., 40 years ago, Joe Riley gave it to him. Last month, Riley, 84, got a chance to collect the debt from another Kennedy, JFK's nephew Joe, who holds the same congressional seat his uncle the president once held. The occasion? The day U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy, D-Mass., showed up at Riley's Chelsea apartment to deliver Riley's weekday lunch from Meals on Wheels. Needless to say, Riley was surprised to open the door and see Kennedy. "I told him I was carrying the story for a long time and thought I'd never get to meet him and share it," says Riley, who refused Joe Kennedy's offer to repay him. "I couldn't figure out how much interest was due, anyway," Riley jokes. Says Kennedy: "Joe loaned more than a nickel to my uncle — he spent his life in public service in his community. Now it's time for us to lend a hand to Joe and millions like him. That's what Meals on Wheels is all about, and that's what we should remember on Make a Difference Day." Kennedy is one of tens of thousands of high-profile and everyday people who will join forces Saturday, Oct. 26, to deliver free hot lunches for Meals on Wheels to more than 1 million seniors in 20,000 communities. Meals on Wheels will get another boost from Plymouth dealerships in 10 states, which will loan vans for deliveries. Some dealers plan to collect food and clothes for the needy.
