Subject: Drivers needed - Meals on Wheels....
Jeff, several months ago, you sent a note seeking help to get you out of jail....
I wonder if you would be willing to send out this note seeing Meals on Wheels drivers....
I have been a driver for about 15 years.
It is an easy, simple way to make a difference in the lives of many folks...and the blessings are immediate & rewarding!!!
Perhaps the easiest way for someone to contact MOW, would be to contact Volunteer Kingsport, (423) 247-4511.

Subject: Help Needed
I am on the Meals on Wheels Board of Directors. We are now in critical need of volunteer drivers. We currently deliver to over 220 recipients with about 50 recipients on the waiting list. We have drivers that are dropping out due to medical issues or they are moving. We already have 50 folks waiting to be on our list, and we are now at a point where we may have to drop some of our current recipients. It is awful to think of these people not receiving the food they need. Therefore, I'm sending out a plea for help.
Basically, we have two places you can pick up food and deliver - Waverly Road Presbyterian Church and First Presbyterian church (on church circle). You choose which location you want and how often you can volunteer. We recommend once a month, but of course would be thrilled if someone wanted to do it more often. On your designated day, you pick up the food around then it takes about 1 to 1.5 hours to deliver to around 15-20 participants. It is easiest when you team up with someone. That way one person drives and the other person jumps out to deliver. Robin Minga and I have delivered meals for the
Anyway, I just wanted to get the word out about this need. If you have the time to help, please let me know and I will get you in touch with the right people. Also, feel free to send this on to others you feel may be interested.
