EVANSTON — Uinta Senior Citizens, Inc., provides home delivered meals, Monday through Friday, to local residents who are unable to leave their home. This is an invaluable service to those who might otherwise not receive a nutritional, balanced meal.
Many individuals also receive a breakfast with their home-delivered lunch. While the lunch meals are always delivered hot and contain at least 1/3 of vitamins and nutritional needs for a person, the breakfast may consist of a variety of fruit, cereal, milk, boiled eggs, sausage biscuit, bread and other delicious breakfast foods.
The Uinta Senior Center relies on caring volunteers to assist with home delivery of meals, and are in need at this time of such volunteers. The routes needing support consist of the delivery of eight to 10 homes, all in the same area, and will require 45 minutes to one hour. The time frame is 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This includes picking up the meals at the Senior Center and delivering them on the route.
“Businesses or organizations, perhaps you would consider allowing employees to volunteer occasionally for this worthwhile cause,” a release from the center said. “With the economic challenges within our community, we understand that it may not be feasible for you to contribute to your Senior Center monetarily. The assistance with our home delivery program would be an opportunity and a means to donate.”
