Meals on Wheels Driver - Arlington Center
Minuteman Senior Services
Deliver meals and smiles and make a difference in the lives of seniors in your community!
Minuteman Senior Services' mission is to assist seniors who want to age gracefully and independently in their own homes. Meals on Wheels volunteer drivers help this mission by delivering meals to homebound seniors Monday - Friday between 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
As a Meals on Wheels volunteer driver, you do more than deliver a meal. You provide friendly contact that brightens the lives of homebound seniors. You also serve as our eyes and ears as a safety check and report any health or well-being concerns before they become a crisis.
Meals on Wheels is perfect to do on your own or with a friend. You can partner to share a route or deliver on alternative weeks. However you choose to help, you will see many smiling, grateful faces among the seniors on your route.
The commitment is one day a week or every other week. (Of course, we'd be happy if you can do more!)
While we serve 16 communities, this opportunity is located in Arlington Center.
