Meals on Wheels seeks volunteers to deliver food

SPRINGFIELD - Meals on Wheels in the Springfield area needs five volunteers to meet local needs.

Requests for the service continue to increase and by winter, the agency expects demand to exceed its capacity to deliver meals. To do so requires adding a fifth route and five volunteers.

Volunteers work one weekday each week, from 10:30 a.m. to about 1 p.m. delivering about 15 meals to homebound elderly people in the area. Volunteers must have their own vehicle and may work alone or with someone else. Mileage expenses can be reimbursed.

For more information, call Lee Johnson at 736-4408.
