VOLUNTEER

Meals on Wheels could not operate without our volunteers!

You can volunteer as much or as little as you like. We are flexible to accommodate your schedule.

WAYS TO VOLUNTEER

PREPARE

If you love to cook, join our kitchen staff. You may be preparing hot entrees, making sandwiches or salad. Monday, Wednesday or Friday 7-10 am.

COORDINATE

Do you have good organizational skills? We have a team who packs food according to each client’s requirements. Monday, Wednesday or Friday 7-10 am.

DELIVER

Would you like to meet clients? We deliver to each client’s door and provide a friendly hello and a needed check-in. Monday, Wednesday or Friday 10 am - noon.

We hope you’ll join us. Our volunteers know that by helping to nourish those who are homebound or infirm, they are making a real difference for people in need.

 

HERE'S WHAT OUR VOLUNTEERS HAVE TO SAY

“I CAN’T THINK OF A BETTER GROUP OF PEOPLE AND ENVIRONMENT TO SPEND A FEW HOURS WITH – I AM ASSURED OF CARE, LAUGHTER, SYMPATHY, AND GREAT STORIES – WHO WOULDN’T GET UP EARLY FOR THAT? VOLUNTEERING EVERY WEDNESDAY BRINGS ME AS MUCH JOY AS CLIENTS MUST FEEL WHEN THEIR MEALS ARE DELIVERED.”  - Valerie Grayson

“I’VE BEEN DELIVERING FOR ABOUT 15 YEARS. I ENJOY MEETING AND INTERACTING WITH THE CLIENTS. SOMETIMES I AM THE ONLY PERSONAL INTERACTION THEY HAVE ALL DAY, SO IF THEY WANT TO CHAT, I’M HAPPY TO DO SO. SOME OF THE CLIENTS ARE SO DARN CUTE, I CAN’T STAND IT!” - Vicki Biehl

“I HAVE VOLUNTEERED FOR ABOUT 8 YEARS. IT IS THE BEST PART OF MY WEEK. THE THOUGHTFUL AND KIND PEOPLE I WORK WITH ARE THE REAL JOY. IT’S SERVING OTHERS TOGETHER, LIKE A COMMUNITY.

IT IS A GIFT TO ME.” - Donna Devany

“ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DIFFICULTIES FACED BY MANY CLIENTS IS LONELINESS. I TRY TO SPEND A LITTLE TIME WITH SOME OF THEM. I LIKE TO GIVE BACK TO MY COMMUNITY IN A WAY THAT HELPS OTHERS.” - Beverly Gabel
