Meals on Wheels in Arlington In Need of Weekday Volunteers

No comments

Fifty years ago, Meals on Wheels came to Arlington, VA. Since then, homebound individuals have received healthy meals, and regular “check-ins” to make sure all their needs are met. Through the help of volunteers, Meals on Wheels has ensured their clients find comfort in the reliability of warm meals and a friendly knock on the door.

Today, a force of 250 volunteers serve 180 clients in Arlington delivering approximately 7500 meals a month.

More volunteers are still needed to ensure that all clients have access to services.
