Meals on Wheels (Johnson City)
NORTHEAST TN RSVP
Deliver a hot meal to frail homebound elderly
Frail homebound elderly or handicapped individuals count on volunteers like you to bring them one hot meal each day. This enables them to remain in their home and avoid having to be placed in a nursing home. Sometimes the food delivery volunteer is the only person they see during a long lonely day for them.
Pick up meals at a meal delivery site and deliver them to the homes of the homebound individuals. Each volunteer is usually only needed once per week if enough volunteers are available. This volunteer opportunity takes place Monday - Friday mornings only.

Make a Difference in Your Community!
The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) provides opportunities for people 55 and over to make a difference in their community through volunteer service. RSVP volunteers contribute anywhere from a few to over forty hours a week, serving through schools, day care centers, police departments, hospitals and other nonprofit and public organizations to help meet critical community needs. RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choice to its volunteers. RSVP matches the personal interests and skills of older Americans with opportunities to help solve community problems and offers supplemental insurance while on duty, and on-the-job training from the agency or organization where volunteers are placed.
