Meals on Wheels
For more than 40 years Lakewood Meals on Wheels has made it possible for Lakewood residents who can no longer cook for themselves to remain in the comfort of their home and enjoy a hot, afternoon meal and a sack dinner for the evening.
Lakewood Meals on Wheels is always looking for volunteers. Volunteers range in age from teens to seniors, and they help with everything from driving and delivering meals to making sandwiches and packaging the meals.
You don't have to drive to help out. Volunteers are needed for as little as two hours for one day a week between Monday and Friday, or on a substitute basis.
"If you know someone in your neighborhood that could benefit from a home delivered meal and a visit from a friendly volunteer please contact us," says Meals on Wheels executive director, Debra Larsen. "We're here to serve any Lakewood resident who needs help. Our program helps individuals maintain their independence. We can also help them get connected to other services offered in the city so that they can stay in their home as long as possible."
You can help financially too. Lakewood Meals on Wheels is a non-profit, community agency sponsored by many private contributors as well as Soroptimist International of Lakewood/Long Beach, Project Shepherd, and the City of Lakewood. Contributions are tax deductible. To learn more about donating, volunteering, or becoming a client, call Lakewood Meals on Wheels at 562-925-8747.
