Five ways to volunteer with Meals on Wheels in 2019

We’d love to have you volunteer with us! Here are a few ways you can get involved this year.

Deliver meals

One hour can make a difference. Volunteer as often as you’d like at one of our 25 delivery sites. Volunteering is a great opportunity for retirees, college students, business professionals, teachers, shift workers, stay-at-home moms and dads, church groups and others.

Deliver alongside your coworkers or community organization

Our Adopt-A-Route program is the perfect way to have your company or organization give back to the community. Join more than 80 local organizations who share their time delivering meals to elderly neighbors in the community. The program fits the needs of each organization – deliver as little as once a month, or every day! Learn more here.

Become an office volunteer

Office volunteers help in a variety of ways. We’re always looking for dedicated individuals to help us answer phone calls, welcome guests, and assist on projects. Shifts are available from 8 am – 12 pm, 12 pm – 4 pm or 8 am – 4 pm. Volunteers also are needed to assist in the office with a myriad of tasks such as filing, stuffing envelopes, and setting up for events.  Learn more about volunteering here.
