Milkman service donates to Brooklyn's Meals on Wheels Center

by: DAVID F. ASHTON - Milkman Scott McDonald with Local Farmers Delivery surprises Thelma Skelton Meals on Wheels Center manager Collette Livermore with a gift of milk and bread. Local “milkman” Scott McDonald, who heads the new home milk delivery service “Local Farmer’s Delivery” surprised Brooklyn’s Thelma Skelton Meals on Wheels Center, at S.E. Milwaukie Avenue at Center Street, with a donated delivery of fresh milk and bread on March 21.

Guests having lunch in the center looked up and smiled, as McDonald strode through the tables making his delivery. “I remember when the milkman used to come to my house!” one of them said.

“This is a pleasant surprise,” said the center’s Manager Collette Livermore. “I wasn’t aware of this new company. It is a great service to the community. We appreciate the donations, and our guests get a kick out of seeing ‘the milkman’ come in for a delivery,” she said.
