Julie Rose loaded the trunk of her car with 14 hot meals and started the engine. She pulled out of the parking lot and headed to her first destination.
"I'm going to be their age someday and I hope (this service) is there for me when I need it," Rose said. "It makes you appreciate what you have and what you don't have."
The Bowling Green resident is driving a route during her own lunch break, something she embarks on each week to voluntarily deliver hot meals to the elderly of Wood County 60 years and older. Deliveries are made directly to their homes.
Her route is one of four trails that navigate throughout Wood County, serving as a volunteer service for delivering hot meals to 14 of the 70 local residents hosted by the Wood County Committee On Aging (WCCOA).
Rose averages approximately 100 miles each month driving to every destination on her route, and pays for her own gas in doing so.
"It's not an issue or a big commitment," Rose said. "It's worth it to me."
