Due to the increasing number of homebound elderly and disabled clients in Central Fort Worth we are needing to start a new volunteer delivery route. This means we will need at least 5 new volunteers to help us out.
Volunteering is easy! You will pick up the meals at a location in Central Fort Worth, usually between 10:30-11:30am, and deliver to around 8-12 clients in that area. Volunteers are only needed ONE day per week, Monday through Friday, and it usually takes around ONE hour to help out. You can volunteer individually, with a friend, with your family, or even use this as team building for your business.
You can pick a day that works for you to help out. If you are available on Tuesdays, then you can deliver every Tuesday during lunchtime to the same clients. If you go on vacation or need time off we will find substitutes for you, so you can resume normal delivery when you get back. If you don’t have a regular schedule then you can become a substitute and pick up shifts whenever you are free.
After you sign up to volunteer with us you will have to complete a background check form. Once that is completed we will bring you in for an orientation, there we will give you your delivery bags and you will meet your scheduler. After orientation your scheduler will set you up on a training route with an experienced volunteer to show you how meal delivery is done.
If you are interested in helping please contact Sarah Drew-Watson at 817-258-6426 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also look at our website for more information at mealsonwheels.org
A quote from one of our clients: "The volunteers are what makes Meals On Wheels what they are, and I love most of the food and snacks."
To promote the dignity and independence of older adults, persons with disabilities, and other homebound persons by delivering nutritious meals and providing or coordinating needed services.
Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County provides hot, nourishing meals to elderly and disabled persons who are unable to provide meals for themselves. The meals, plus daily contact by caring volunteers and professional case management allow frail, homebound persons to remain in their own homes...where they want to be.
