Substitute drivers to deliver Meals on Wheels to older adults

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Volunteers of America Northern Colorado Services

Hands

Help our senior community by becoming a Meals on Wheels sub-driver!

Volunteers are needed to deliver meals to homebound older adults (those age 60+) in the Fort Collins, Wellington, Bellvue and Laporte areas. Most routes are located in Fort Collins. Help provide nutritious frozen meals to older adults in our community! Not only are volunteers getting food to those in need, you are offering an added check-in and friendly face.

Delivery takes 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours once a week (T-TH). Volunteers arrive at our office (405 Canyon, Fort Collins) between 10am-12pm to pick up frozen meal boxes and then deliver them to clients between 11am-1pm. Volunteers often get acquainted with and develop meaningful friendships with the people they deliver to.

Wanting a more flexible volunteer position? Substitute drivers to fill in as needed!
