Meals on Wheels seeking volunteer drivers

To the Editor:
Are you looking for a meaningful volunteer experience?
Lutheran Social Services (LSS) Senior Dining and Meals on Wheels in Glencoe is grateful for the wonderful volunteers who deliver meals to Glencoe’s homebound older adults. However, we are currently in great need of additional Meals on Wheels volunteers. We are located at the Millie Beneke Manor in Glencoe, and operate our meal programs daily, Monday through Friday. Volunteer drivers/deliverers pick up meals between 10:30 a.m. and 10:45 a.m., and delivery takes one hour or less.
Each day, we serve an average of 35 residents of Glencoe in need of a hot meal, and need your help in order that we may offer this essential community service. Our program allows senior citizens and disabled individuals to stay healthy, living independently, and in their own homes. Volunteers can choose which days they want to work, and may also stay and eat with us or take a meal to go.
Anyone interested in helping may contact Karen Pagel, site manager, at Glencoe Senior Dining 320-864-5728. Anyone interested in receiving Meals on Wheels or reserving a meal to eat at the Senior Dining site may also call the same number.
