We are also looking for more meals on wheels drivers, volunteers, a sub head cook and a sub dishwasher so call or stop by for more information.

If you have a friend or family member you like to invite to join us for a meal we can give them a meal for thir first time joining us so maybe we can get some new people to join us at the center.
