ORGANIZATION: Community Emergency Service

  • 179 people are interested

Do you enjoy having conversation with others? Have a few hours a month to make phone calls? Then the CES Telecare program is for you.

Telecare is a great way to support our Meals on Wheels clients who are homebound, living alone or disabled. We know that lack of frequent contact with others can lead to deeper issues such as loneliness, depression and malnutrition. A short phone call once or twice a month just to say "Hi" and let them know others are around to help can make a BIG difference.

Sign up today and join our virtual team!

About Community Emergency Service


1900 11th Ave. South, Minneapolis, MN 55404, US

Mission Statement

Community Emergency Service transforms lives by serving neighbors, sharing resources and becoming community - a place where people come hungry and leave hopeful.


Community Emergency Service is a multi-service non-profit organization that runs a number of food based assistance programs for Minneapolis residents. Our main programs include: Food Shelf, Meals on Wheels, Home Delivery, Bonus Friday Distribution, and East African Food Distribution.

CES is located within one of the most diverse, densely populated neighborhoods in Minneapolis; over 20,000 people live within its boundaries. 46% of families living in the Phillips neighborhood are below the federal poverty level.

At CES, we strive to serve all our neighbors in need without distinction or test. We invite support from volunteers and donors and are open to collaboration with other agencies, regardless of religious affiliation.

Will you help us move people from hunger to hope?
