Caddo Council on Aging-Meals on Wheels

The Caddo Council on Aging Meals on Wheels program is currently seeking driver(s) for the University Terrace neighborhood every Wednesday between 10:00 and 12:00. If you do not know, Meals on Wheels is a program to help feed home-bound senior citizens. It is a very rewarding opportunity. Driver(s) are required to commit to picking up approximately 8 meals from Holy Trinity Lutheran Church on Youree Drive. One home site is in the apartments right next to the church while the rest are in University Terrace neighborhood and Towne South apartments. If you or a group of people would be interested in taking on this very important commitment, please let me know.
