  Bob and Sally Warner  deliver to several people in the East End of York usually one time a week. They find delivering meals to the older adults as a satisfying activity and they hope that someday if they need this service, somebody will be willing to deliver meals to them and help them out.

  Elaine Hengst  delivers meals generally twice a week and still squeezes in a few vacations throughout the year! Other awesome volunteers usually cover in her absence and we are thankful for that! Elaine states she likes delivering meals "to see the people that she has been delivering to over many years. You form bonds with these folks and are very concerned if something is not when you go to their house."

White Rose Senior Center has a fantastic core group of people who LOVE to Deliver Home Delivered Meals and we are so appreciative of the time and service to help the most vulnerable people in our community, those who receive Home Delivered Meals. These delightful meal recipients have been assessed by Care Managers from York County Area Agency on Aging have been deemed eligible to receive the meal service. They are homebound, 60 or over, a York County resident and have no other people to help them on a regular basis.

We deliver meals three times a week that covers the seven days of the week. Many drivers deliver once a week, perhaps twice a week , some are every other week and others are "on call" as fill-ins when other drivers are on vacation.

We are always looking for new people to help with this volunteer opportunity! You just need a car, a driver's license, and a big heart to help other people! Most routes take 1-2 hours to deliver and the meals are ready at 11:00. We try to deliver between 11:00 and 1:00.
