    Newtown Meals On Wheels (MOW) provides a hot, midday meal for shut-ins or people temporarily or permanently unable to get out, thanks to the many volunteer drivers. But due to retirement or other time conflicts for drivers, the organization is currently in great need of additional drivers, said driver coordinator Colleen Honan. Volunteers are assigned a route consisting of several meal recipients. Most drivers volunteer just once a month, one day of the week.
