The driving teams for Meals on Wheels met at the Melissa Christian Church to discuss the operations of the meal deliveries in Anna and Melissa. Joseph Stringer was the guest speaker and serves as the volunteer coordinator for Meals on Wheels in Collin County. The Group Leader, Pat Daniels, gathered the drivers for this area to compare notes, tell stories and provide ideas for future deliveries.
Collin County Meals on Wheels has 72 routs, of which 68 are completed by volunteer drivers. Delivering more than 800 meals five days a week, the staff and drivers provide food for those who cannot cook or get around to make meals. All meals are prepared daily at the McKinney Meals on Wheels location.
Meals on Wheels is looking for volunteers to help deliver meals, prepare meals, conduct well-check calls, work at the reception desk and fill gaps where needed. If you are 18 years of age or older, have a valid driver’s license and car with insurance and have a desire to serve the community, please contact Volunteer Operations Coordinator Joseph Stringer at 972-562-6996 ext. 125. The organization provides the training needed.
