KINGMAN - The Kingman Senior Site Council is asking residents to devote a little bit of their Christmas Day to helping out homebound seniors in need of a warm meal.

The Site Council runs the local Meals on Wheels program and needs volunteers to plate, package and deliver warm meals to 150 homebound seniors on Christmas Day in Kingman, Golden Valley, Dolan Springs, Chloride and Meadview, said Site Council board member John Kirby. The meals are usually delivered by the Meals on Wheels staff and volunteers at the Kingman Senior Center on Airway Avenue, but because of the holiday the center will be closed.

The Site Council has already purchased the food and Kingman Regional Medical Center has stepped up to cook and prepare the meals, but the organizations needs volunteers to package and deliver the meals, Kirby said.

The only requirement to volunteer is to show up at 11 a.m. on Christmas Day at KRMC's dining room, 3269 Stockton Hill Rd.

This is the second year the Site Council has asked for volunteers. Last year, the Site Council was swamped when it asked for volunteers to deliver meals on Thanksgiving and Christmas day, Kirby said. The Site Council had to collect the names of additional seniors for volunteers to deliver to, he said.

"Last year went really well. We had so many volunteers we had to turn some people away," he said. "It's a really nice deal for the community. Our homebound seniors get a good, hot meal and the volunteers get a chance to do something good for the community." For more information, contact Kirby at (928) 718-5422.
