Volunteer Opportunity:
Meals on Wheels Needs Help

January 16 - Orientation to Assist Lubbock's Meals on Wheels….
In late 2014, Meals on Wheels - a vital part of many homebound peoples' daily lives - implemented a wait list because they were physically running out of space. On January 19th, Lubbock Meals on Wheels will be adding another delivery route to their daily schedule. This will allow them to serve 12 - 14 more people. This will be the last route that they will add until they can expand their current operation. With this addition, the volunteers will be delivering 54 routes each weekday. Orientation only takes an hour. Delivery takes an average of one hour. Meals can be picked up between 10:45 and 11:15 a.m. Volunteers do not need to commit to any particular delivery schedule as they use many substitute drivers each day. For those able to help fill this important need in our community, please attend this upcoming orientation which is scheduled for January 16. Prospective volunteers please call 806-792-7971.
