Richard White one of our trusty volunteer drivers from the Waterbury Area Senior Center, prepares to start his 49.4 mile route from Waterbury to the towns of Moretown and Middlesex. He drives this route 5 days a week and stops to see 18 different clients. Richard spends the majority of his route driving dirt roads to reach our clients. Richard’s route has the most dirt roads and serves the most rural areas. One of his first stops is up a very steep incline of dirt roads 1 mile from the main road that is paved. “With the use of the brand new Subaru, I am more confident I will make it to all my stops, the car works great on the dirt roads,” says Richard White.
Thank you Subaru of America for helping us reach more Meals on Wheels clients each day. Your gracious generosity is helping our volunteers reach some of the most vulnerable seniors living in our area. On average each month, Richard drives 528 miles to deliver meals. The donated 2018 Subaru Outback will enable him serve up to 15 more seniors and serve 300 more meals each month in a safe reliable car.
