Lawrence Meals on Wheels is in desperate need of volunteer drivers to deliver meals to homebound community members. Regular volunteers are sought to commit to at least one route per week, and substitute volunteers are also needed to be on call for uncovered routes on any given day. Volunteers pick up meals for their route at 11:15 a.m. on their assigned day and should count on delivering meals for around one hour. To get signed up as a Meals on Wheels volunteer, call 830-8844.
