EDWARDSVILLE – Main Street Community Center is seeking volunteers to deliver meals to seniors and adults with disabilities in the Edwardsville-Glen Carbon area. The Center needs to expand to six (6) routes and needs to fill one volunteer role every weekday, Monday-Friday.

“We recently expanded to five routes per weekday, but have continued to grow and we now need to expand to six routes. The growth is partly due to the pandemic needs, but also due to increased awareness of essential services that benefit our local seniors and adults with disabilities,” explained by Sara Berkbigler, Executive Director. “Our regular meal volunteers are so dedicated to their route clients. They see first-hand how beneficial the program is – and they tell us all the time - they get more than they give.”
