The Salvation Army Golden Diners Meals on Wheels program for senior citizens aged 60+ are seeking volunteers to deliver lunch time meals to homebound seniors, Monday through Friday. Volunteers are needed to deliver meals to seniors in the Aurora, North Aurora, and Elgin areas.
Especially in this extreme cold weather, drivers are needed more than ever.
Volunteers can set their own schedule to deliver meals once a month, as often as they would like, or can sign up as a “substitute driver” to fill in when needed. Service hours are basically from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Volunteer drivers serve a most important service to their communities. They are a link to the outside world for many recipients who may only see one person a day, their meals on wheels driver. Volunteers offer a nutritious meal, human contact, and a well-being check.
You can make a difference! For more information contact Kathy at The Salvation Army Golden Diners, 630-232-6676, Ext. 15, or email her at Kathleen_loubsky@usc.salvationarmy.org.
