Meals on Wheels

Sue Allen



FUMC has staffed a Meals on Wheels delivery route for many years. A wonderful group of 40+ members and friends volunteer for this local mission. We go out in teams of two; each team delivers one day a month. Time commitment is about 1½ hours (10:30am-12noon, M-F). We often need volunteers who can help on a regular basis or as a substitute when it fits your schedule. Registration and training are required and will be provided.

Pack-a Snack is a weekend feeding program in elementary schools targeting the chronically hungry. It provides snack-sized items for students to take home every Friday during the school year.
