MERRILLVILLE | Interested and prospective volunteers are invited to a one-hour Volunteer Orientation and Training Session at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday or 1:30 p.m. April 17 at the Meals on Wheels Community Room, 8446 Virginia St. Applicants will have an opportunity to tour the facility and ask questions about Meals on Wheels services.

Each day, volunteers assist in the delivery of more than 1,500 meals throughout Lake County. According to Volunteer Manager Joan Vith, volunteers are needed for all routes. “However, at the moment, we are particularly in need in the Hammond, Cedar Lake, and Lake Station areas,” she said.

“In addition to individuals, many area civic organizations also participate in our volunteer program. We rely on the generosity of our civic-minded volunteers to deliver in the communities they serve. The Rotary, Kiwanians, Service League and Chambers of Commerce are valuable to ensuring 'No senior goes hungry.' I am confident additional civic groups in Lake County will assist us as we reach out to them,” Vith added.

To register for training, or for more information on volunteering opportunities, contact Vith at (219) 756-3663 or
