Meals on Wheels volunteers needed

Meals on Wheels volunteers are needed one day a week from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. to deliver to our homebound seniors.

Afterward, enjoy our chef’s lunch for free and the great feeling of having helped seniors in our community.

To volunteer, individuals must be willing to undergo a background check. Please call 264-2167 for more information or to sign up.
