Gainesville Meals on Wheels needs volunteers

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - For the first time in many years the greatest need for Meals on Wheels in Gainesville is not money. It's volunteers.<br /> <br /> Meals on Wheels Coordinator, Milon Christman, says money is available to provide meals to older adults, but the agency doesn't have the volunteers to deliver them. <br /> <br /> "We are good right now financially, but we are in desperate need of about 50 volunteers who have an hour or more each week, or even once a month, to deliver meals, Christman said. "We are delivering 300 meals a day and around 8,000 meals a month. <br /> <br /> Volunteer opportunities include helping with the meal prep in the kitchen or actually delivering meals. More than 200 people currently volunteer for Meals on Wheels. <br /> <br /> Find out more about volunteering by calling 770-503-3338.<br />
