Illini Bank’s Commitment to Meals on Wheels: How to Get Involved

Lori & Pi - Meals on Wheels 062013 (3)

Since 1970, the American Red Cross Illinois Capital Area Chapter has provided Springfield with its only nationally certified Meals on Wheels program. This service provides a low-cost/no cost meal delivery service to clients in Sangamon County. The program offers a diverse menu of healthy and nutritious meals, which are prepared at Memorial Medical Center. In addition, the Meals on Wheels program is the only meal delivery service in the area that offers special, dietary-specific meals to its clients. The program provides lunches, with breakfast also being available.

The chapter is in need of delivery drivers, so 20 Illini Bank employees have stepped up to the plate to drive a route and deliver meals to the program’s clients. Starting June 25th, employees will volunteer their time on a rotating basis. Each route only takes an hour, but they make a huge difference in the lives of local Meals on Wheels clients!Tim - meals on wheels 062013
