Volunteers needed for delivering food to seniors

If you have a drivers license and an insured vehicle, you could help local senior citizens by volunteering to deliver meals to them. 

“We are in desperate need of volunteer delivery drivers,” Senior Meals Director Chay Heilman said. 

Deliveries have gone up during the COVID pandemic since the dining room of the Grand Coulee Dam Senior Center, where the food is prepared and normally served, is closed. 

Heilman said that three drivers are needed for each of the five delivery times throughout the week: at 9 a.m. on Mondays and Fridays, and at 3 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.

Each driver delivers an average of 11 meals in the Grand Coulee Dam area, from Electric City to Grand Coulee to Coulee Dam.

Those interested should contact Heilman by calling 509-633-3214, or by email at .

The home delivery program delivers to those 60 and older or disabled.

There are no income restrictions for the program, which collects a suggested donation of $4 per meal for seniors, although seniors who can’t afford a donation won’t be turned down.
