Meals on Wheels 

St. Matthew’s will be delivering meals November 27th thru December 1st.   We have four routes with two people needed per route.  Meals are picked up at Mercy Hospital at 11:00 a.m. There is a signup sheet on the bulletin board. The State of Wisconsin requires that all volunteers have a mandatory background check.  If interested in delivering Meals on Wheels but haven’t completed the State of WI mandatory background check contact Sally Wellnitz (608-752-2037) for this form. You will then need to complete it and submit it to Mercy Hospital.
