March Volunteer Spotlight

Even during current quarantine conditions in Montgomery County, Neighborhood Meals on Wheels volunteers continue to deliver hot and cold meals to homebound, elderly, and/or handicapped residents in our community. This month we are honoring a long time volunteer, Gary Rogers.

        Gary Rogers retired in 2013 after 33 years working for Housing and Urban Development in human resources. Prior to his retirement in 2013, he had already begun to think about where he would like to volunteer and joined us at Neighborhood Meals on Wheels shortly thereafter. Gary currently is one of our regular Route 3 deliverers every Monday. Gary and his wife, Sharon, have lived in East Norriton since 2002. Sharon is an excellent baker, and Gary shares her baked goodies with Neighborhood Meals on Wheels. Gary always has a kind word and a smile and our Route 3 patrons have grown very fond of him. He always has their well being at heart.

Neighborhood Meals on Wheels is always in need of new volunteers either on a temporary or permanent basis. For more information, call our office at 610.265.7051

In 2019 we served over 4,000 meals to Township residents.  It takes a great number of volunteers to see that all our meals are delivered each day.

Our 'home' is the Valley Forge Presbyterian Church.  Each weekday we utilize two volunteers who meet at the church and travel to Norristown State Hospital to pack the meals.  These volunteers leave the church between 9:00 and 9:15 each weekday morning and return with all of the meals between 10:30 and 10:45 A.M.

Eight more volunteers gather at the church at 10:45 A.M.  Once the meals arrive from Norristown State Hospital, teams of two leave the church with meals packed to deliver to four different routes in the Township.  Delivery can take anywhere from forty-five minutes to a little more than an hour.

We have volunteers that deliver meals weekly, monthly and on a substitute basis.  If you would like to help, we would be happy to have you join us to see if this is a volunteer opportunity you would enjoy on a regular basis.

Please call the Meals on Wheels office to set up a mutually agreed upon date to pack or deliver meals (610.265.7051).
