SOMERSET COUNTY, Maine — Spectrum Generations Somerset Community Center is seeking volunteer drivers to deliver Meals on Wheels to homebound seniors and disabled adults in Somerset County out of its Skowhegan office starting immediately.

Drivers are needed to assist with coverage of the following routes: Solon/Embden, Skowhegan, Bingham, Jackman, Madison/Norridgewock, Hartland/St. Albans, and Pittsfield routes. Applications for back-up drivers are always accepted. Drivers are reimbursed for mileage.

“We have 11 seniors in Bingham, eight in Jackman, 23 in Hartland and St. Albans, 31 in Skowhegan, 16 in the Pittsfield area and 26 seniors on our Madison/Norridgewock route that are in jeopardy of going without food if we do not find volunteer drivers and back up drivers to deliver,” says Nutrition Coordinator Ryan Poirier in a press release. “If meals are not delivered, some of these residents will go hungry.”

If you would like to be part of Spectrum Generations mission of “No Senior Goes Hungry,” contact Beth at 474-8552. Spectrum Generations is the Central Maine Area Agency on Aging.  For more information on Spectrum Generations visit www.spectrumgenerations.org.
