The Martin Luther King Jr. Loaves & Fishes program is looking for a few good volunteers.
Volunteer drivers for the Meals-On-Wheels program will help to ensure that homebound seniors in Northeast Portland receive nutritious meals and a bit of companionship.
"These volunteers are so invaluable because they not only help us feed our frail elderly, but they make sure seniors see a friendly face at least once a week," said David Lomax, manager of the Martin Luther King Jr. Loaves & Fishes program. "Sometimes the Meals-On-Wheels driver is the only person these homebound seniors see all day."
Meals-On-Wheels are delivered between 10:30 a.m. and noon Monday through Friday. Drivers must be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver's license. Martin Luther King Jr. Loaves & Fishes is at 5325 N.E. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
For more information, call Lomax, 503-988-5211.
Since 1970, Loaves & Fishes Centers have provided a nutritional and social lifeline for seniors through 28 meal sites in Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties and Meals-On-Wheels delivery to homebound seniors. With the help of more than 6,600 volunteers, the nonprofit, nonsectarian agency now serves 4,300 meals daily and more than 1 million meals each year.
