Help with packing our meals for homebound seniors! We could use helping hands to assist with this volunteer opportunity Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Onsite training is provided on the day of your first volunteer shift. You will be paired with one of our client care associates and they will give you an overview of how to pack the food.
This volunteer opportunity gives you the chance to learn about our meal delivery program and to support our client care associates who deliver meals to clients in need of meals.
Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels provides nutritious meals and social contact for the homebound elderly, ill and disabled in eastern Washtenaw County to enable them to live in a healthier, safer, and more independent manner.
Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels has been around for 45 years. We focus on helping the elderly age safely in their home and our amount of clients continue to grow. Monday-Saturday we deliver meals to our clients and provide a safety check with a smile. We are soon beginning a model called CAPABLE which will offer our clients resources to improve mobility. As the need continues to grow so does the need of having volunteers to help with coverage.
Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels has been working with volunteers since the start of the organization. Our volunteers play a vital role in our mission. Our volunteers assist with meal deliveries to our clients, help with office & administrative tasks, help with special events, and other tasks as they come available.
Our organization offers multiple volunteering opportunities to make your experience a memory you won't forget.
