If you are interested in helping, or have questions about this event, contact Jennifer Beruvides at firstname.lastname@example.org.
St. Mark’s is teaming up with the Caddo Council on Aging - to take a Meals on Wheels route that will be located in the neighborhoods not far from the church. The meals are brought to the church, a volunteer picks them up and delivers them between 8:30 am and 11:30 am. There are 8 meals and delivery takes about one hour. This is a great way to touch an elderly person’s life! Find a friend and do this as a team!
