Meet Paula Slevin

January 22, Hilton Head Island – Meals on Wheels, Bluffton-Hilton Head proudly announces the hiring of Paula Slevin, a Hilton Head Island resident, to lead the operation of the food distribution site in Bluffton. This position is being funded by the Marian G. Graham Endowment Fund of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry through an IMPACT Grant awarded in November 2023.

The Bluffton site first opened in October 2023 as a pilot and proved quickly to offers the volunteers a much-welcomed alternative to picking up meals on Hilton Head Island. The 110 volunteers living off island and delivering to clients off island, now deliver the hot nutritious meals earlier and have more time to facilitate enriched wellness checks on clients Monday through Friday.

When one volunteer was asked what the new Bluffton locations meant to them, their response was “Five minutes to pick up meals versus 45 minutes, what’s not to like.”

The food distribution site is located near the Bluffton Soup Kitchen at AME Church at 21 Boundary Street. The site was economically made possible by a collaborative effort between the boards of both Meals on Wheels, Bluffton-Hilton Head, and the Bluffton Soup Kitchen.

Slevin will be responsible for coordinating meal delivery in Bluffton and Sun City, community outreach, and bringing her logistic skills to facilitate best practices to serve and expand the client base.

“By the year 2030, there will be more people in our country 60 years and older, than children for the first time,” said Lili Coleman, executive director. “Our agency must be ready to meet the growing needs of our older and homebound neighbors throughout the area.”

“I want to have more joy in every aspect of my life,” said Paula Slevin. “I know there will be much joy working at Meals on Wheels, helping the elderly, housebound and ill clients to receive balanced meals; and reaching out to specific clients facing loneliness.”

For more information on Meals on Wheels, Bluffton-Hilton Head, please call 843-802-0919. To invite Slevin to speak at local meetings, church groups, or business opportunities, call the Bluffton office at 843-757-7088 between 9 am and 11 am.
