A very important Volunteer component for our Meals on Wheels program serving the Fairland area is transporting the meals from MHP to the pick-up location in Fairland!
This takes approximately 30 minutes – the folks on both ends are simply a delight and it is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for those with little free time but willing to serve the community!!
- Pick up hot and cold container from MHP Cafeteria at 10:30 a.m.
- Transport to Fairland Town Hall (old fire station). Turn towards Triton Schools off Fairland road, past Sutherlands, turn left on Washington. At stop sign turn right (never crossing railroad tracks). Town Hall is on the left – Linda and driver will meet you. Unload into their containers.
- Return containers to MHP unless driving route the following day.
- Mileage will be paid.
- Background check required.
Meals are delivered Monday-Friday. You can sign up for one day per month, one day per week, whatever fits your schedule!!
