Hilton Head resident, Jim Daniel, joins the Meals on Wheels, Bluffton-Hilton Head’s Board of Director – first order of business to lead strategy planning
Hilton Head Island, SC, July 15, 2022 – Jim Daniel, a local resident with years of business experience, will join the Meals on Wheels, Bluffton-Hilton Head agency’s board of directors effective immediately.
“When I was approached about considering a position on the board, I was motivated by observing the dedication of the volunteers and leaders who are involved and serving people in need of a basic human requirement – food,” said Daniel.
Daniel and his family have been Hilton Head Island property owners for 20 years, part-time 12 years and full-time the last eight years. Originally from Connecticut, Daniels and his wife are the proud parents of three adult children and nine grandchildren.
“I first visited Hilton Head 50 years ago and fell in love with the setting and the people, particularly the Gullah Heritage,” said Daniel. “Hilton Head became a regular vacation stop over the years and despite all the changes I have seen take place over the years, it has never lost its charm and appeal for me. So, when I started looking at retirement from my career in the insurance industry, I never considered any place I would rather live.”
“Jim will be a great addition to Meals on Wheels, Bluffton-Hilton Head,” said Joe Scalzo, chair of the board of directors. “His desire and passion to give back to our community will be a huge asset to support the agency and address the growing problem of food insecurity for those we serve.”
“I believe my background and experience in organizational development and leadership should mesh well with the plans and objectives of Meals on Wheels,” said Daniel. He looks forward to providing input and support in all aspects of the organization’s activities.
