The Carter Burden Center for the Aging (CBCA) is dedicated to supporting the efforts of older people to remain in their homes living independently, safely, and with dignity. Volunteers are an integral component of the Carter Burden Center's 40+ years of success. No matter your age, experience or schedule, CBCA can accommodate your needs to ensure that you have a meaningful and effective volunteer experience.
The Carter Burden Luncheon Club oversees meal delivery to homebound senior citizens living in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Meal delivery volunteers not only provide the advantage of a daily lunch to our seniors, but are able to interact with those they are benefitting face-to-face. Each meal delivery also serves as a status check and a friendly visit for seniors who are often unable to leave their home and receive few, if any, visitors. Meals are delivered on foot to clients living between 69th and 79th Streets, between Fifth Avenue and the East River. Volunteers may deliver individually or in groups. Volunteers should be able to carry 5-10 pounds and walk up several flights of stairs comfortably.
December is the Holiday season and we are particularly in need of Meal Delivery volunteers to help us deliver nutritious meals to our homebound seniors.
We are looking for Meal Delivery volunteers available any day (Monday through Friday - no weekends) between December 5th and December 30th from 10:15am to 12:30pm.
We are happy to accommodate individuals, families as well as larger groups. If you are interested, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and mention the date(s) you are available.
