MEALS on WHEELS PROGRAM in NEED of VOLUNTEER DRIVERS

Category: Press Releases       Posted By: Denise Gallagher       Year: 2017

Citrus County’s Meals On Wheels Program joins the National Meals On Wheels Association of America with the goal that “no senior goes hungry”.  In order to ensure that we are able to provide meals for homebound seniors here in Citrus County, we need volunteers!

Do you have a few hours a week to give of your time?  If so, your local Meals On Wheels Program could use your help!  We deliver meals to seniors throughout Citrus County around the lunchtime hours, Monday through Friday.  We need volunteers who are willing to give approximately 2 hours of their time, one day a week, to deliver meals to seniors. 

Each meal route consists of 10 to 20 stops, taking one to two hours to complete, and you will even be reimbursed for your mileage.  We are currently in need of drivers at all of our meal delivery locations throughout Citrus County.  Our seniors look forward to seeing our volunteers each day.  We are sure to have an opening you could fill.

Many people are waiting for your assistance, so what are you waiting for? Become someone’s hero today!

For more information or to become a volunteer driver, call Support Services at 527-5975.
