Meals on Wheels – August

Beaver Val­ley deliv­ers meals to Bran­don com­mu­nity shut-ins dur­ing the months of March and August. Dur­ing these months, we are in need of peo­ple to help deliver these meals.  The meals are picked up at Split Rock Tow­ers on Teak­wood about 11:50 am.  A resident that lives in the Splitrock Tower usually is waiting by the front door to let you in. Her name is Margaret. When she is there, she will deliver the meals in the tower. There are times she is unavailable so we are responsible for the meal delivery in the Towers. Each day the red and blue bags are exchanged for new ones from the dri­ver of Active Generations. The empty bags are returned to the Splitrock Towers’ kitchen.  When returning the red and blue bags there may not be anyone to open the security door, just leave the bags in the entry.  Please call me if you have questions anytime during delivery.  Beth 261-3796 

There is a list of names and their addresses with direc­tions on how to get to the houses.

First deliver the meals within the Tow­ers and then deliver the rest of the meals. Depend­ing upon the num­ber of peo­ple receiv­ing meals, it takes approx­i­mately 45 min­utes to an hour to deliver them.

It is a very reward­ing expe­ri­ence and fam­i­lies with chil­dren may want to con­sider mak­ing it a fam­ily ser­vice project before school starts.  Please sign up to help on the bul­letin board by the church office. If you have not driven before, you need to fill out a volunteer application with your personal information.  This form is necessary for liability for Active Generations.

Beaver Valley’s month to deliver Meals-on-Wheels is August 2018.  If you would like to help with this great ser­vice in Bran­don, a sign up cal­en­dar will be posted by the church office. It only takes about an hour at noon to deliver the meals, and this is a great oppor­tu­nity to help others!
