Meals on Wheels/Friendship Meals in need of volunteers in Wellington

Submitted to Sumner Newscow — Aging Projects, Inc. Meals on Wheels/Friendship Meals (API) is in desperate need of volunteers to keep its senior meal program in operation.

API has been serving the Wellington Community for over 40 years providing meals to seniors both in the home and at the Wellington Senior Center.  This program has been provided by the dedicated volunteers who help in the kitchen and deliver the home bound meals.

API is in a crisis and the organization desperately needs volunteers to help daily at the center and with the home delivery.  Without volunteers this program cannot operate, the funds to pay people simply do not exist.  API has been on the same budget since October 2009 and does not have the money to hire new staff to take the place of our volunteer staff.
