[January 28, 2019 – Mentor, OH] – The Lake County Council on Aging delivers nutritious hot meals to seniors in the Eastlake, Wickliffe, Painesville, Madison and Mentor areas at 10:30 am Monday through Friday. Volunteers are generous individuals who make the hot meal a reality for seniors in our community.
We are looking for volunteers who can dedicate at least one day per week or every other week from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm approximately. If you are unable to make a regular commitment, you can still volunteer as a dedicated substitute MOW driver. Substitute MOW drivers serve intermittently, when they are available.
The demand for Meals on Wheels service has been increasing each year as it continues to meet a critical need for many Lake County seniors. The Council on Aging is looking for four (4) drivers to deliver in the Eastlake area, two (2) drivers to deliver in the Wickliffe area, two (2) drivers for Mentor, and one (1) volunteer driver in Painesville and one (1) driver in the Madison area. Almost every location needs another driver on Friday. Friday is a busy day for drivers due to the delivery of Saturday and Sunday meals along with Friday’s meal.
In less than 2 hours per week, you can positively impact the life of 15 seniors by delivering a hot meal with a friendly smile and a few nice words while checking in on the well-being of the client. It is one of the most rewarding volunteer activities available.
Please call Linda Llewellyn at the Council on Aging at 440-205-8111, ext. 228 or email Lllewellyn@lccoa.org for more information and to begin making a difference in the lives of seniors.
