11:00 AM - 1:00 PMMeals on Wheels - OFF SITE

Contact  Tina Hinh

Are you looking for a satisfying way to live our church's ideal of Connect, Grow, Serve?  Do you have a friend you would like to see regularly?  Are you seeking a way to participate in some meaningful community action? Meals on Wheels is for you!

Congregants from UUCA deliver meals on the fourth Thursday and Friday of each month. Many of us arrange to do a route with a friend, giving us a guaranteed time to be together to chat as we make our rounds.  Parents sometimes find this activity a good one to do with children, especially during summer break. When we do the same route for several months, we also get to know the clients, who nearly always seem grateful to converse with a visitor. We serve a diverse population of clients in South Arlington who live in single family homes as well as in high rise and garden apartments. They represent the ethnic and racial diversity of South Arlington, where people from over 100 nations live. Being a Meals on Wheels volunteer is a perfect example of an outreach activity that enables participants to Connect—with fellow congregants as well as the clients, Grow—in knowledge of and sensitivity to others, and Serve—in a very tangible and important way.
   
The time commitment is from 11:00 am-1:00 pm.  The meals are delivered to the parking lot of the First Presbyterian Church at 601 N. Vermont St., with the driveway off Carlin Springs Road, a block from Ballston Common.  We go in teams of two, one driver, and one to run the meals in to the clients.  When you sign up, we ask you indicate which of these  you prefer, or say 'either' if it does not matter.

Tina Hinh and Sara Anderson
are the coordinators of the UUCA MoW volunteers.  Please contact us:  Sara: rayandsara@aol.com or 703-532-3830; Tina: tinahinh@gmail.com.  Email Sara and Tina to add your name to the volunteer list serve.
