Do you have 1-2 hours a day to deliver a smiling face and a meal to a homebound senior? If so, we need you. Volunteer Drivers are needed to drive meals to homebound seniors. We deliver over 50 meals a day and your help is needed. Routes are available every day of the week. This is a great opportunity for families, students, civic groups, churches, businesses, employees, and retirees to help out.
