About

Norfolk Country RSVP is urgently seeking drivers to support Meals-on-Wheels programs in Milton, Weymouth and Braintree. The Meals-on-Wheels program helps bring nutrition and independence to Seniors and people with special disabilities. This need for Norfolk County RSVP volunteers to assist in this program is especially acute during the winter months. 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.
