The Mechanicsburg Area Meals on Wheel (MAMOW) has a walk-in freezer/refrigerator which is attached as a permanent part of the building structure. The door is opened and closed dozens of times a day, so after roughly 20 years the bottom seals and hinges are worn out. The bottom structure is warped is such a way the automatic closure does not function. Parts were not available to repair. The project replaced the entire door with a retro fitted door assembly. The door was attached to the wall and included extending the temperature monitoring gages and light switch on the new frame. The door was purchased from and installed by K&D Factory Services, Inc., Harrisburg, PA.

(L to R): John Petire, Club Foundation Chair; Dave Burns, member; Darrell Westby, Member; and John Mengel, club member and MAMOW Vide-President. Pictured with just assembled new racks on January 19, 2022.
 
The existing racks were deteriorated and unstable. Club members assembled new racks which were provided by MAMOW as part of this project.
