"The hurricane packs are vital and help provide peace of mind in case a normal meal delivery cannot be made due to a storm. After experiencing Hurricane Irma last year, we are much more aware of how vulnerable our seniors and homebound are during extreme weather."
Volunteers are needed to help pack the supplies and insert batteries into the radio/flashlights on Friday, May 18 from 2 p.m. - 4 p.m. at the Meals on Wheels office.
Additional volunteers are then needed to deliver between eight to 14 packs within a 7 miles radius of each other on Saturday, May 19 between 9:30 a.m. - 12 p.m. Meals on Wheels states it takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete and all volunteer drivers must complete a volunteer application, attend a mini-orientation and have a valid driver license and auto insurance.
