Meals on Wheels has a dedicated group of drivers, but some leave Michigan for the winter. As is expected, we are in need of substitute drivers. If you are interested in helping deliver to these individuals, please contact Kathy Adamson at Saline Area Senior Center. An experienced driver will train and guide you. SASC adminsters the program and EHM Senior Solutions provides the meal.
