We need your help so no Springfield senior goes hungry! Daily Bread, a meals-on-wheels program, delivers hot, nutritious meals to home bound seniors in the Springfield area Monday through Thursday between 9:45 am- Noon (except holidays).

In Springfield alone, we deliver nearly 250 meals a day across 13 routes. In a typical week, we rely on 65-85 volunteers to make that happen. In addition to the rewarding experience of truly helping seniors in our community, you may request a meal & mileage reimbursement is available at the rate of 20 cents a mile.

To schedule a ride-along or for more information, contact Autumn at dailybread@ssoci.org or call (217)528-4035, ext 123. Thank you for your time!

About Senior Services of Central Illinois

Location:

701 W. Mason, Springfield, IL 62702, US

Mission Statement

Our organization is pleased to be a part of the CMS MedicareRx Volunteer Initiative to help people with Medicare get the assistance they may need to benefit from Medicare's new prescription drug coverage. Organizations and volunteers nationwide have come together in the CMS MedicareRx Volunteer Initiative to help people with Medicare understand their options and make an informed, meaningful decision about their prescription drug plan options. The CMS MedicareRx Volunteer Initiative is sponsored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Administration on Aging (AoA), and is committed to building an official corps of volunteers who are available to help people with Medicare in communities nationwide understand, choose and join a Medicare prescription drug plan if they choose.

Description

Our organization is providing free, one-on-one assistance to people with Medicare and their families via telephone and face-to-face sessions, public education presentations and other programs. Through the CMS MedicareRx Volunteer Initiative, volunteers at our organization will be given the opportunity to work directly with people with Medicare to help them understand their prescription drug plan options and join a plan that will best suit their prescription drug needs if they choose.
