It is that time of year again! On Friday, September 27th Lubbock Meals on Wheels will have our Big Wheels Deliver Meals day. As you may know, this event takes place in cooperation with Sonic Restaurants. On this day, local celebrities and community leaders volunteer their lunch hour to deliver a Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ route and are chauffeured on the routes in classic/unique cars. It is a treat for our recipients to be visited by these “important” people, see the old-time cars, and enjoy a special lunch of a “Sonic” hamburger and tots.
Lubbock Meals on Wheels prepares, packages, and delivers hot meals to over 840 homebound, elderly, and disabled people each weekday. We have 61 routes with 10-16 stops on each route. We recently expanded our services into Wolfforth. The drivers and volunteers will leave from their assigned Sonic Restaurant location between 10:45 and 11:00 a.m. and each route requires about one hour to deliver. After the delivery, all drivers and celebrities are invited to Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ office for a complimentary lunch, also provided by Sonic.
This event is a great promotion for Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ mission and volunteer opportunities. As a local “Big Wheel,” we need your participation in this project. It will require about two hours of your valuable time on Friday, September 27th, from 10:30 a.m. until your route is completed and you have joined us for lunch. Please R.S.V.P. at 806-792-7971 or to [email protected] ASAP. We look forward to hearing from you.
