EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – When the heat is on, it’s good to have someone watching out for our loved ones.

Once again, we are dealing with temperatures that are not only uncomfortable but temperatures that could be dangerous, especially when the heat index gets in the triple digits.

Since children and the elderly are a little more sensitive to the heat, it gives families peace of mind when there is an extra eye out on their loved ones.

It’s even better when that involves a meal.

The Meals On Wheels program delivers over 100 meals a day, five days a week by volunteers who give their time.

While volunteers like Jim and Jane Gulick are delivering a hot meal, they are also checking on their clients.

Meals On Wheels of Evansville’s Director Myrrl Choate says if the volunteers see there is a problem, they are sure to notify the family.
