Ministries that provide opportunities and service
Bliss-Liewert Senior Center is having a difficult time with finding drivers for Meals on Wheels!
Meals on Wheels is a program from the Department on Aging that provides hot, balanced meals once a day through the week to area seniors and home-bound of Lenawee County. The Adrian Senior Center prepares the meals and they are loaded and taken to area senior centers for packaging and distribution. Without this program, some people may not eat...
On a rotating bases, area churches are called to provide volunteers to deliver the packages of food, but during the past few months, volunteers have been hard to find.
If you can deliver meals on one, some or all week days, please let the Senior Center know. You may call (517) 486-2397. Even one day will be helpful! You will be expected to arrive at the Senior Center (Lane St. Blissfield, down town) around 10:45 AM, pack your route's clipboard and coolers in your vehicle (you can get help with this), and run your route between 11:00 and Noon. In the winter months the time is a little later (11:30 to 12:30) due to meal delivery coming from Adrian. Once your finished with the route, come back to the center and drop off the clipboard and coolers and leave---Or better yet, join in the fellowship at the center and enjoy a wonderful buffet and maybe a rousing hand or two of euchre or pinochle.
When Immanuel has a sign-up sheet for volunteers to deliver meals, put your name down! Immanuel's next sign-up will be for two weeks in February: Monday, Feb. 17 through Friday, Feb. 21, and Monday, Feb. 24 through Friday, Feb. 28. Perhaps slip a Valentine in with the dinners. What a great way to show God's love through your actions.
If you have signed up to deliver meals and the weather has turned inclement, call the center (517) 486-2397 to find out if it's open. You may also listen to area radio stations.
