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: COORDINATOR NEEDED!

The responsibility requires the issuance of weekly client delivery route sheets, and periodic communication with the Dep't. of Aging, and the other four churches in Hershey.
