Meals on Wheels Orange County, NC

  • 75 people are interested

As a volunteer, you will have varied responsibilities. Your primary function is to deliver the meals, but you are also a greeter, an observer, a liaison and sometimes even a lifesaver. Since our volunteers are the ones who have daily contact with our clients, your job is an important one in helping to provide the best possible service when delivering meals to our clients. Can't commit to volunteer on a weekly basis? No problem. We are always looking for substitute drivers to cover routes when our regular drivers are unavailable. We deliver hot meals M-F at lunchtime. If those hours aren't convenient for you, there are other ways you can help. We always need fresh fruit or single-serving-sized fruit cups, like peaches or applesauce. Organize a fruit drive. We are open to hearing your ideas!
