"I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live,
it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can."
— George Bernard Shaw

Northland Shepherd's Center Meals on Wheels and other volunteer opportunities
Northland Shepherd's Center Meals on Wheels program provides nutritious meals and caring smiles with every delivery. We would not be able to accomplish this mission without volunteers. Currently the MOW program is in need of compassionate hearts to deliver meals.
What our clients are saying:
“I don’t know what I would do without Meals-on-Wheels. Many days it is the only face I see. It is so nice to hear their cheerful voice call out my name. After my fall, I didn’t have the ability to cook for myself. I am ever so grateful for the hot meal and fellowship they provide.”
For more information on volunteering with Meals on Wheels, Transportation, Friendly Visitors, Health Advocate, or Respite, please visit the website: www.northlandsc.org or call the Volunteer Coordinator, Patty Monaco, at 816-452-4536.
