(Placerville, CA) - The El Dorado County Senior Nutrition Program is currently looking for dedicated, caring volunteers for the Home Delivered Meal program. Each volunteer generally works one day per week on an assigned route, delivering meals from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. to older adults in the community who have become more homebound due to health or other reasons. An orientation session for potential new volunteer drivers is scheduled on Thursday, May 23, 2019, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. at the Placerville Senior Center, 937 Spring Street in Placerville. 

This volunteer orientation will include a brief tour of "The Club", Placerville's Older Adult Day Services Center, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. Since May is National Older Americans Month, there's no better time to include a visit to this special and unique care setting. Individuals may choose to volunteer in that program as well.
