Meals On Wheels (TAS) courtsey of The Australian Red Cross – Hobart
Every day a friendly smile, a chat about the weather, a nutritious meal and knowing someone will drop by to say hello, changes the lives of many Australians. Volunteers are crucial to the operation of every Meals on Wheels organisation. They drive the cars and deliver the meals and other food services to clients, as well as helping run the service by serving on the management committee. Depending on which service they work with, volunteers can also assist transporting clients, provide office skills, help set up databases, write newsletters or prepare promotional fliers for events. No matter what an individual can offer, every bit of help adds up to a happier, healthier community.
