But with more than 150 referrals each month, it is becoming a real challenge for the organization to get those meals delivered. With new clients being added daily, the demand for volunteers is greater than ever. In addition, the winter months create a challenge of their own, since many regular volunteers head south.Mobile Meals offers flexible volunteer opportunities. Participants can deliver meals right in their own community at a schedule they set for themselves -- once a week, once a month or anything in between.Meals are delivered between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Those who work during the day can "Adopt-A-Route." For example, an office can sign up to deliver a particular route once each week. Employees then sign up in pairs or individually to take the route.For more information on this and other Mobile Meals volunteer opportunities, call Janelle Arnold at 330-376-7717 or send an e-mail to jarnold@mobilemealsinc.org.Nonprofit agency accepting vehiclesBig Brothers Big Sisters of Portage County are accepting vehicle donations to raise money for the organization.Donors need the title to the vehicle, and will receive a tax deduction receipt.
