Delivering

What is Adopt-a-Route?

* AAR is a Corporate Volunteer Partnership
program through Meals on Wheels of the
Palm Beaches.
* Provides effective hands on opportunities for
companies, organizations, and religious
groups to make an impact in the community.

How many people are able to volunteer?

* For driving we recommend 8-10 employees,
paired in teams of two (2). This allows each
employee to participate one time per month.
* For kitchen volunteers, we recommend no more
than 6-8 volunteers. This allows for all
volunteers to participate on the line, plating,
prepping, and packing the meals for the drivers
to deliver.

When are meals delivered?

* Kitchen volunteers arrive at 8:30 am and plate,
prepare and pack the meals.
* Meals are delivered daily, Monday through
Friday between 10:30 am and 1:00 pm.
* Each route consists of 10-12 stops.

Where do we deliver meals?
* We serve approximately 225 homebound
seniors from Jupiter, south to Lake
Worth/Lantana and West to Greenacres.
* Routes will be assigned based on the proximity
to your organization/company.

What will the time commitment be?
* Routes will take 60 - 90 minutes to deliver.

Why Corporate Partnerships?
Doing good and giving back feels good!
* Team Building: Group volunteer activities
naturally create a positive team building
experience.

* Community Engagement: Our AAR partners
are committed to helping the community they
work and live in.

* Employee Engagement: From a recent surveys
of other AAR programs, 86% of employees think
that participation in this program increases their
productivity and happiness in the workplace.

* Positive Impact: 98% of employees
participating in AAR programs believe that
corporations which promote community
volunteerism make a positive impact on an
organization's reputation and employee
retention.

* Give Back: The AAR program is the perfect way
to give back to your community and employees.
Organizations are realizing that if you give
employees the opportunity to give back, they'll
have a renewed appreciation for their jobs.
