Meals on Wheels adds new Travelers Rest routes, seeks volunteers

TRAVELERS REST, S.C. – Meals on Wheels of Greenville is currently seeking volunteers for its Travelers Rest routes, including for two new routes that were just announced.

Meals on Wheels offers free meals to individuals that have been referred to the organization by a physician or social service agency, and there is a growing base of clients in the greater Travelers Rest area, according to communications coordinator Virginia Vanvick.

Starting this month, a route near North Main Street/Highway 276 and a route near Old Mill Road/Mush Creek Road were added.

“It is so easy to make a tremendous impact by delivering a meal and a smile to someone in need,” Vanvick said. “Our clients are hungry for the food but they are even hungrier for that human touch that means so much.”

Driver openings are available Monday through Friday, and Meals on Wheels will work with prospective volunteers to find compatible routes that work with their schedule, availability, and location.

In the Travelers Rest area, meals are brought to the First Baptist Church of Travelers Rest each weekday at 10:45 a.m. Volunteers can sign up to help distribute meals once a week, once a month or somewhere in between.

Delivery on a normal route usually takes 1 to 1.5 hours, Vanvick said.

In addition to individuals, volunteering for Meals on Wheels is also a great opportunity for families, groups, churches, organizations, and corporations.
