This week will be National Volunteer Week, which is a convenient news peg, because our local chapter of Meals on Wheels is looking for volunteer drivers.
Your humble correspondent has been volunteering for them for two weeks, and it’s rewarding work. Typically, the shifts are from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and as can be infrequent as once a week. It’s been a blast, and the people have been great to work with. Volunteer drivers toodle around the neighbourhood with a ‘runner’ who drops the meals off.
The Meals on Wheels program is run from Reconnect Family Services on Weston near Eglinton.
