Volunteer drivers needed for Meals on Wheels

The nutritious meal, friendly visit, and safety check they provide helps seniors cope with the three biggest threats of aging: hunger, isolation and loss of independence.
The non-profit organization is in dire need of volunteers - especially drivers to deliver food - during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you have the free time and can help neighbors in need, please consider volunteering.
