Help needed

Community organization badly in need of volunteer help

As a result of volunteers leaving the Sooke area, the Meals on Wheels program is desperately seeking people who can help.

If you have a passion for cooking and driving, perhaps you may want to consider giving a little time to this worthwhile volunteer-run organization.

They need help preparing meals for seniors and shut-ins on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. Delivery drivers drive about one-and-a-half hours while cook’s helpers work from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Sooke Community Hall. They work in groups of eight people twice a month and it is an excellent way to meet new people and have a social outlet while volunteering and giving back.

Without additional volunteers, the organization will  have to scale back the meals to two days per week. Many seniors rely on the personal contact, thereby enhancing their lives.

If you can help call Alma at 250-642-2184 or May at 250-642-4973.
