Together, We Can Deliver

The aging population is escalating rapidly, and so is the need for volunteers. Join our group of volunteers who are the heart of our organization. It doesn't take much from each of us to improve the lives of so many. Together, we can make a huge difference for seniors in our community. 

All volunteers can receive a meal on the day that they come in.

Other Ways to Help

  • Adopt-a-Route
  • Create We Care Packages--For every holiday, birthday and at times of need, Meals on Wheels and our community of generous volunteers deliver a special gift bag to our seniors to say, "We Care." Often coupled with personal notes from the individuals who created the packages, it is a sure way to brighten someone's day. 
  • Compose hand-written cards to be delivered to our seniors--cards should not be sealed
  • Volunteer at a Meals on Wheels fundraising event
  • Host an event (in-person or online) with Meals on Wheels as a beneficiary
  • Think outside of the box, and create your own project! We welcome new ideas
