Meals on Wheels Volunteer Drivers needed

Every day, Monday through Friday, meals are prepared, packed and delivered to approximately 100 individuals (the number varies as needs change) living all over Polk County.

The task is simple. Pick up meals at The Meeting Place in Columbus, Green Creek, or Saluda and deliver them to recipients on a given route and return the empty containers to origination site.

It is a commitment of time and travel expense, but the benefits are priceless.Drivers get to check in with some of Polk County’s most endearing, interesting people. They get to make a difference in the lives of these people by allowing them to be independent and remain in their homes as long as is feasible. They get to be the “friendly face” for so many who are alone. And they get the additional benefit of a lovely drive through beautiful Polk County.


If you have some extra time, a reliable vehicle, and a heart for service, call Pam Doty at 894-0001.
