Volunteers keep our wheels rolling.
Meals on Wheels benefits from the time and talent of hundreds of volunteers. We invite you to join us and get involved!
Each and every weekday, Meals on Wheels requires the volunteer work of 34 drivers and 4 packers, and we could not do what we do without the contribution of these everyday heroes.
We recruit volunteers from all walks of life, and the opportunities we offer are diverse. If you are interested in helping, our volunteer manager will be happy to customize a schedule for you. The commitments of our drivers vary widely. Some drive the same route once each week; some drive twice a month; others substitute on an "on call" basis, filling in for weekly drivers when they are available and needed. For those who would like to help without driving, we also offer a fun, team-oriented meal packing program. We also occasionally need help with simple administrative tasks: stuffing and sealing envelopes or answering phones. Special events can also call for volunteer assistance.
Driving for our organization is family-friendly, educational, and rewarding. Many of our volunteers take their children or grandchildren along. What a great way to share the joy of community service with younger generations!
If you are interested in volunteering, contact our Volunteer Manager at (434) 293-4364.
