Interested and prospective volunteers are invited to attend a Volunteer Orientation and Training Session at the Meals on Wheels Central Kitchen, 8446 Virginia Street in Merrillville. One-hour sessions will be held on Tuesday, November 13 at 10:30 am and Thursday, November 15 at 1:30 p.m.
Each day, volunteers assist in the delivery of more than 1,300 meals throughout Lake County. The duties of a Meal Delivery Volunteer include:
- Driving your own vehicle and delivering meals during the lunch hour.
- A route within your own community.
- Flexible monthly scheduling.
- Each delivery requires about 1 ½ hours.
“In addition to individuals, many area organizations and businesses participate in our corporate volunteer program,” said Michael Glorioso, Volunteer Manager.
