Gloucester County’s Serv-A-Tray program needs volunteer drivers to help this summer in West Deptford and the surrounding towns.
The county’s nutrition program, which has a satellite site at the , needs drivers to help take meals to West Deptford, National Park, Westville and Deptford during the week.
“Giving a few hours a week of your time makes a difference in the lives of many,” Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said. “Both the county’s Serv-A-Tray program and nutrition sites provide nutritious meals that mean so much to those who receive them.”
Drivers make their runs between 9 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday, delivering meal each week to seniors who are over the age of 60, are homebound and have a regular diet.
About half the meals sent to the West Deptford site are served at the fire hall, with around 60 sent out each day, county spokeswoman Debra Sellitto said.
“The county could not operate this program without volunteers, and any time that someone can give will be appreciated by the community,” said freeholder Lyman Barnes, who serves as the liaison to the Division of Senior Services.
Volunteer drivers are reimbursed for mileage.
