First Baptist Church is an active participant and supporter in our local Meals on Wheels Program. First Baptist Church is the largest community financial supporter of this feeding program. Teaming with North Georgia Community Action, hot meals are delivered daily by members of our community to those elderly and homebound members of our community in need of this meal. For many of these individuals, this is the only meal that the recipients will get each day. One week out of each month, First Baptist volunteers staff two routes of the Meals on Wheels delivery. In addition to delivering these meals, team members take advantage of these opportunities to check on the well-being of the recipients. They often take time to have simple conversations with these people. Again, for many of these individuals this is the only outside interaction that these people will have each day.
Julie Fisher, Executive Assistant at First Baptist Church, coordinates the Meals on Wheels team at First Baptist. Volunteers are always needed for meal delivery. If you would like to volunteer, you are encouraged to give Julie a call at (706) 278-2911.
