HESSCO Elder Services is appealing to Canton residents for volunteers interested in becoming drivers for the Meals on Wheels program.

This program, which delivers prepared meals to homebound elders, is in search of volunteers to contribute about one hour per week to elders who would have difficulties getting their own meals otherwise. HESSCO serves 12 communities in south Norfolk County, including Canton. Volunteers are needed in all 12 communities, but the need is particularly great in Canton.

Drivers spend about one hour a week from 11 a.m. to noon delivering meals.

HESSCO’s goal is to help keep elders in their own home for as long as possible.

To help, contact 781-784-4944 or info@HESSCO.org.
