MIDLAND - Despite the severe snow storm that left the roads in dangerous driving conditions Meals On Wheels in Midland was still able to make their daily deliveries on time with a little help from the community.

"I saw on the news that they needed help, so I decided to come down with my all wheel drive and help," First Time Volunteer, Cathy Smith, said.

"I work for a dentist office and they were closed today so I decided to help. I did a lot more good than if I were to sleep at home," First Time Volunteer, Ashley Burns said.

Meals On Wheels had an average of 75 drivers who showed up on Tuesday to help make those much needed food deliveries, and many first time volunteers say they'd do it all over again if they had to.

"It only takes about an hour of your day and I've got plenty of time," Smith said.

"I think it's great, rain or shine, they always need their food," Burns said.
