Meals on Wheels Nov. 28-Dec. 2

Volunteers are needed each day to deliver a hot noon meal to the elderly homebound of the community. Meals are picked up at DMH along with a detailed description of the route, which takes one hour or less to complete. This is a valued ministry of Catholic Charities that profoundly impacts the lives of their clients. They desperately need this service, and they depend on local churches for volunteers. Please call Patty Anderson at 429-1135 to volunteer one or more days. Thank you!
