Volunteers needed to deliver Serv-A-Tray meals to the homebound out of the Thorofare Fire House 

(West Deptford, NJ) – Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger and Freeholder Jim Jefferson put out the call today for volunteers to assist in delivering meals for the county's Serv-A-Tray program operating out of the Thorofare Fire Hall. 

Freeholder Director Damminger said that volunteers are needed at the Thorofare Fire Hall from 9 a.m. to noon to deliver meals in West Deptford, National Park, Westville and Deptford areas.  

Director Damminger said, "Giving a few hours a week of your time can really help improve the lives of many.  Our Serv-A-Tray program provides nutritious meals to homebound seniors and residents." 

The Gloucester County Division of Senior Services operates the Gloucester County Serv-A-Tray program that provides hot, nutritious noontime meals to eligible county residents delivered Monday through Friday and provides frozen meals for the weekends and holidays.  Over 1,700 meals are prepared and delivered each week. 

Freeholder Jim Jefferson, liaison to Senior Services, said, "Anyone who can spare an hour or two a day should consider becoming a Serv-A-Tray volunteer. The county could not operate this program without our volunteers."
