Want to give back to your community? Meet new people? Help the elderly and disabled? Then consider becoming a volunteer driver for Mountain Meals on Wheels.
MMOW relies on our team of volunteer drivers to deliver meals to our recipients Monday through Friday, 52 weeks a year (with exceptions of a few major holidays and severe snow days). We have organized our territory into three routes: Combined Routes 1 & 2 start from the Mountains Community Hospital (MCH), and travels through Cedar Glen, Arrowhead Villas, Running Springs, and as far east as Green Valley Lake. Route 3 starts at Mountains Community Hospital, across the north side of Lake Arrowhead, through Twin Peaks, and finally to Lake Gregory. Route 4 covers Lake Gregory, Crestline, through Valley of Enchantment, and as far west as Cedar Pines Park. The routes are arranged to have an equal number of recipients, and typically has from 8 to 13 stops. Each route takes approximately 1 1/2 hours to complete.
Most Volunteers are scheduled to drive once each week, although a driver can prefer to drive once or twice per month …or simply be a substitute driver on standby. We try to assign our drivers one of the routes closest to where they live on the mountain. Our only requirements are:
a) You enjoy driving and meeting people,
b) You have a valid California Drivers License,
c) You have valid Liability Insurance on your vehicle
We are always in need of drivers. If you are interested in volunteering, or want to find out more, please call Gwen Meshorer at 310-926-1030 or send your contact information to Volunteer@mountainmealsonwheels.org.
This is a great way to give back to your community, help our neighbors in need, meet some great people…all while driving around our great mountain area. We hope to hear from you!
