Meals on Wheals
The Northeast Iowa Area Agency on Aging Meals on Wheels is in need of volunteers to help deliver hot meals during the lunch hour to home bound seniors. The volunteer's visit not only provides them with a nutritious meal that is an essential need to keep them in their home, but also serves as a check on their well-being.
If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions, please contact Missy Anders at 319-231-1623.
