‘Meals on Wheels’ in urgent need of drivers

News

Gaithersburg “Meals on Wheels” are in urgent need of drivers after seeing some of its lowest numbers of volunteers.

Meals on Wheels delivers hot and cold lunches to elderly and shut-ins on weekdays, but as an organization run entirely by volunteers, its output can be affected when they are low on numbers.

The meals are prepared at Asbury Methodist Village, where drivers pick up the containers and deliver them to about ten homes.

Volunteers are asked to drive once a week.

“And it’s a great feeling of giving back to the community in volunteer work, to people who are definitely in need of good nutrition,” said Tom Gill, Gaithersburg Meals on Wheels.

Last year, Meals on Wheels delivered more than 32,000 meals.
