As we approach summer, with vacations and busy schedules, the Preble County Council on Aging has a serious need for back up drivers for home delivered meals. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday, except holidays, to seniors in Preble County. Back up drivers work about two to three hours a day delivering meals in their vehicle to senior citizens. Drivers have a dedicated route, and can work one, two or more days per week, or just one day per month. Adult drivers of any age are eligible to volunteer. Drivers receive mileage reimbursement. If you would like to volunteer, or need more information, please call Ashley Bowers at the Senior Center at 937-456-4947 or 1-800-238-5146.
