Do you know someone who would be an asset to the Meals On Wheels volunteer team?
Do you know someone who would like to get involved in volunteering within a voluntary organization? Perhaps that someone is you.
Volunteers are the backbone of our Meals On Wheels program. Not only do they prepare and deliver meals to home-bound seniors in their local communities, but Meals On Wheels volunteers also provide the seniors they serve with companionship and a warm, friendly smile when they arrive at the door.
Our Meals On Wheels program has numerous volunteer opportunities. People of varied interests and abilities can help - whether they want to be hands-on or behind the scenes, and whether they can volunteer during weekdays or only on evenings and weekends.
Drivers and Runners
Drivers pick up meals at a central location then follow a specific route, making several stops along the way to deliver to Meals On Wheels recipients. Sometimes a driver works with a volunteer "runner" who takes the meal from the car to the door of the seniors' homes.
We have events and fundraisers that require extra help - including planning and organizing, publicity, onsite setup and staffing and much more.
Most people don't realize that we have an administrative side - an office that organizes meal preparation and delivery and communicates with clients. Volunteers help us in the office by providing administrative and clerical support to keep the office running smoothly.
Meal Preparation and Packaging
Volunteers assist in the kitchen, preparing meals or packing them for delivery.
Senior Center Aides
We provide congregate meals in addition to home delivered meals - serving meals at a central location, where seniors can come to eat together. There are many opportunities available for those interested in helping with activities, meal service and other tasks.
It's easy to sign up, we work around your schedule, and it's an excellent way to give back to your community.
