Meal Deliveries on Thursday, March 22nd
 
We have partnered with the Wood County Committee on Aging to deliver home-cooked meals to seniors in Perrysburg who are homebound. (If you are thinking “meals on wheels,” you are correct, except this program is through the Wood County Committee on Aging.)  No cooking required! 
 
All you need to do is stop by the Perrysburg Senior Center at 11:15am on the fourth Thursday of the month (March 22nd) and pick up the prepared meals, drive to your 10-14 designated homes, knock on the door, and hand the meal (with a smile) to the homebound senior!
 
Advance arrangements and completion of the attached Volunteer Profile are necessary.  
 
To learn more or to ask questions about this project, please contact Susan Nelson or Les Domini.
