MERRILLVILLE | Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana is searching for additional volunteer drivers. Two training sessions are scheduled for February.
Each day, volunteers assist in the delivery of more than 1,600 meals throughout Lake County. The duties of a meal delivery volunteer include:
- Driving your own vehicle and delivering meals during the lunch hour; about 1½ hours.
- A route within your own community.
- Flexible monthly scheduling.
“In addition to individuals, many area organizations and businesses participate in our corporate volunteer program,” said Joan Vith, volunteer manager.
Vith noted that volunteers are needed for all routes throughout Lake County. “However, at the moment, we are particularly in need in the Griffith and Highland areas,” she said. Also, a new route is planned for Lake Station, and 10-12 drivers are needed in that community.
Interested and prospective volunteers are invited to attend a Volunteer Orientation and Training Session at the Meals on Wheels Conference Room, 8446 Virginia St. One-hour sessions will be held at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday and again at 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 21
To register for training, or for more information, contact Vith at (219)-756-3663 or firstname.lastname@example.org
