The Kitchen is in dire need of volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels this summer.

 

It is especially difficult to keep all Meals on Wheels routes covered during the summer.

 

“Summer is an exciting time of the year for families, and Meals on Wheels volunteers are no exception. Some of our loyal volunteers will be traveling, visiting family and taking extended vacations during the summer months. This makes it critical to find more volunteers to fill open routes,” said Shirley Bradberry, Meals on Wheels Program Director.

 

We would especially like to encourage families with children at home during the day to consider taking on a route. Volunteering helps young people develop a sense of community and giving back to others.

 

There are 50 Meals on Wheels routes in Wichita Falls. It only takes about an hour to complete a route, so it can easily be done during a lunch hour, with 10-15 stops per route.

 

Businesses, churches and Sunday School classes can take on a route one day per week and take turns delivering, or share the route with one person driving and one person going to the door.

 

If you are interested in helping with Meals on Wheels deliveries this summer, call Shirley Bradberry at The Kitchen at 940-322-6232.
