LEHI — One day a week Charlton Middleton, 88, volunteers to deliver up to 10 noontime meals to elderly shut-ins.
So does composer Steven Kapp Perry and Renita Revill, the director of the Miss Utah Pageant.

Middleton is the oldest volunteer in the local Meals-on-Wheels program, which is in a push to get more volunteer drivers, coordinator Liz Merrell said.

"Volunteering is a good idea," Middleton said. "It's worthwhile. I have a lot in common with the people I deliver to." (Read more of the related article: Meals program ramps up delivery by volunteers)
