Meals on Wheels - Volunteer opportunities.
Our Rotary Club works with the Visiting Nurses Association to deliver meals, through Meals on Wheels, to elderly and/or home bound individuals.   We want to make sure they get at least one nutritional meal per day. 

We deliver one route Monday through Thursday and another route Mondays only. We don't deliver on Fridays due to the Rotary meeting. Both routes pick up the meals at a church in East Dallas and deliver in the surrounding area. We pick up the meals around 10:00 am and the deliveries take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Our members deliver generally once a month on their assigned day of the month that works with their schedules - they deliver the same day each month.  We also have a sub list for those who can't do a regular route, but would like to sub for someone when it could work with their schedule. 
It is very fulfilling to take meals to the people; you are often the only person they see in a day.  This is a special volunteer opportunity where you get to know the individuals and they are always very happy to see you.
