A Chevrolet Volt will soon be zipping around Sheboygan County over the noon hour thanks to the continued generosity of the Van Horn Automotive Group. As a direct result from a pilot program with Sheboygan Aurora Medical Center, Meals On Wheels of Sheboygan County began delivering meals to the far reaches of Sheboygan County, affectionately known as the “hinterland” among those who deliver meals. This resulted in a need for a more fuel-efficient vehicle.
Immediately after learning about the need of an eco-friendly vehicle, Van Horn quickly offered to donate a 2014 Chevrolet Volt. Van Horn has provided a three-year lease, for the gas-electric hybrid, and offered Meals On Wheels the option to purchase the Volt at the end of the lease for just $1.

“I mentioned to Dave Heather, a long-time Meals On Wheels supporter and former owner of Lakeland Automotive, that we could use an economical vehicle for our expanding county route. He offered to reach out to his friends in the automotive world, and Teresa Van Horn immediately jumped in to help – again. We are so blessed to have generous people like Dave and Teresa, and companies like Van Horn Automotive Group in our community. We can’t thank them enough,” said Meals On Wheels CEO Kelly Heyn.
Meals On Wheels of Sheboygan County has grown from one route in Sheboygan in 1970
to 29 routes serving the entire county today. Two years ago, after hearing about Meals
On Wheels’ need for a garden vehicle, Van Horn donated a 2000 Chevy Silverado pick-up truck.
