This Ministry represents St. Joan of Arc ecumenically within a group of five denominational churches, to employ volunteers to deliver meals five days a week to senior citizens who cannot easily provide for themselves. We all operate within Derry Township, which is broken up into five delivery routes. The meals are supplied through the Dauphin County Agency of Aging. Our parish delivers meals every Wednesday, with different drivers every Wednesday.
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY: DRIVER NEEDED!
8-1-2020: The Meals-on-Wheels organization in Hershey is looking for a person to deliver meals on the fourth Wednesday of every month. You will be responsible to deliver approximately 8 to 10 meals to local senior citizens. Meals are picked up between 8:30am and 8:45am. The deliveries will take about one hour. Please contact Bernie Keating at 717-534-2712 if you would like to volunteer.
Note: To keep our drivers and clients save during the Covid-19 pandemic all of our Meals on Wheels clients will have a cooler or container on their front step so our drivers can place the meals in the container without any personal contact.
Ministry Goals for 2016
Maintain our number of approximately twenty-five volunteers, so that we can continue our contribution well into the future.
There are no regularly scheduled meetings.Communicate with members and Captains of other churches are through email. Members gather annually in December for a Christmas Coffee.
Occasionally we seek new drivers as drivers retire.
