About

HESSCO Elder Services offers volunteer opportunities for people age 55+ in the following towns: Canton, Dedham, Foxboro, Medfield, Millis, Norfolk, Norwood, Plainville, Sharon, Walpole, Westwood, and Wrentham. HESSCO's Meals on Wheels Program serves nutritious meals to homebound elders Monday-Friday.

Current volunteer opportunities include:

Meals on Wheels drivers to help deliver meals to homebound elders on weekday afternoons. We are particularly in need for drivers in Canton, Dedham, Norwood and Sharon. A valid MA driver's license and reliable vehicle are required. Meals on Wheels route mileage reimbursement is available from HESSCO Elder Services.

Kitchen Support and Dining Room volunteers to help package home-delivered meals on weekday mornings. At some Meals on Wheels locations such as senior centers, assistance is also needed to set up the dining room and clean up after meals.
