The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Norfolk Country RSVP is seeking drivers to support Meals-on-Wheels programs in Quincy, Weymouth and Braintree. The Meals-on-Wheels program helps bring nutrition and independence to Seniors and people with special disabilities. Apart from ensuring that these individuals get a healthy meal delivered daily, the human contact you provide, simply through your physical presence each week, makes a big difference in combating a sense of isolation that many of them experience.
Drivers deliver pre-packed, hot meals to 10-12 homebound seniors locally. The typical time commitment is about 1.5 hours one morning per week between 10:30AM and 12 noon. You need a valid driver's license and your own vehicle. Volunteers are reimbursed by RSVP and Randolph MOW for all travel-related expenses.
Join the MOW team and know that you are making a real difference in the lives of others.
PLEASE NOTE: This volunteer opportunity is available only to adults age 55 and older.
