(Springfield, TN) Mid-Cumberland Meals-0n-Wheels needs volunteers Needed
Charlie an elderly gentleman said he had not eaten in two days. Our meal site manager went out immediately and drove to the address Charlie had given her which was a small shed in the woods. Charlie opened the door and began to cry because he was so happy someone could help him.
Charlie did have electricity and running water but was dependent on friends to bring him food because he did not drive and had mobility issues. We now bring Charlie meals, and he is gaining strength and so grateful for his meals. In Robertson County you have seniors just like Charlie who need meals, and we are in dire need of volunteers to deliver meals.
It takes about an hour to deliver a route, and the frequency you deliver is up to you. You pick up the meals to deliver between 10-10:30 on weekdays. There are no night or weekend deliveries. Please consider delivering meals. We know Robertson County is a caring community, and we need you. Thank YOU!
Volunteers Needed: Springfield Meal Site
