Help wanted

Can you spare one hour a week for a worthy cause? The Meals on Wheels program in Palmerton is always in need of more deliveries.

Deliveries are made from the Palmerton Hospital about 11 a.m., Monday through Friday, holidays included.

Each route requires less than one hour. If you can't commit for a certain day each week, perhaps you would be willing to substitute as needed.

To volunteer, or for more information, contact Meals on Wheels coordinator Richard Bowman at (610) 826-3141, ext. 1163.
