Drivers needed for homebound meals

Published 5:37 pm Tuesday, May 3, 2016

Each weekday volunteers deliver hot, nutritious meals to approximately 135 homebound seniors in Davie County.

This is done through Davie County Senior Services Homebound Meals Program.  Volunteers are the backbone of that program.

Drivers not only deliver meals to homebound seniors in their communities, they provide companionship and a friendly smile to the seniors they serve. For some clients, the meal driver may be the only person they have contact with on that day.

Imagine if that senior couldn’t get the meal they needed.

Imagine a frail, older adult going days, or even weeks without someone checking on them.

If this is something you can’t imagine, consider becoming a volunteer for the program.

Senior Services is experiencing a shortfall of drivers. Drivers are needed for routes covering all of Davie County.

Senior Services will assist with finding the most convenient route and schedule. Drivers can take a route weekly, twice a week, once a month, or fill in when other drivers are unavailable.

Meals typically go out around 10:30 a.m.

If interested in being involved in the meal delivery program. contact Ina Beavers at 336-753-6230.
