Meals on Wheels of Syracuse has recruited at least 14 new volunteers in recent weeks. The program hopes to bring in more groups, businesses, and organizations to cover more than 150 weekly delivery routes.
According to Dave Allen, Community Relations Director, "We've had a great response to our recent volunteer recruitment efforts. We still need at least another 10-12 new volunteers to help us deliver meals to nearly 400 of our meals recipients. Once a week for 60-90 minutes is what we require from our new volunteers. We are very flexible with scheduling. We try hard to accommodate for vacations and unexpected events. Many of our current volunteers have been with us for 10, 15, and 20 plus years. Volunteering for Meals on Wheels is perfect for retirees, church groups, and service organizations. Volunteer@meals.org or call 315.478-5948."
