Want to make a difference in an elderly person’s life? For as little as a few hours a week as a Meals on Wheels Diablo Region volunteer driver, Friendly Visitor or Friendly Caller, you can make a profound difference in the life of an isolated senior and your own life as well! Volunteer drivers deliver hot nutritious meals to the “hidden hungry” – vulnerable seniors who can’t get to a supermarket or are too frail to cook.  As a Friendly Visitor or Friendly Caller you’ll provide a welcome phone call or a weekly visit to the growing number of seniors who are isolated and alone. If you’re interested in these volunteer opportunities or others at MOW Diablo Region and want to make a difference in an elderly person’s life, contact Lee Davenport at 925-954-8736 or ldavenport@mowdr.org.
