For over 60 years, The Salvation Army has delivered Christmas meals to around 4000 homebound seniors and disabled adults.

The elderly and housebound adults in our community have been impacted more than most as they experience even more isolation than usual from the pandemic. The special touch of a fresh holiday meal and a warm greeting from our volunteers will be extra special this Christmas.

  • A catering company will prepare and package the meals off-site for safety and expediency (no meal prep by volunteers).
  • Delivery routes will be given to driver when they register.
  • Check in and meal pickup on Christmas Day will be drive-up (volunteers will remain in their vehicles) (Note: Deliveries will still be made door-to-door)
  • Masks may be required at some facilities
  • (Full details will be provided in the Volunteer Packet following registration through The Salvation Army volunteer site.)

Notes for delivery shifts:
  • 20 meal route - (1 box of fresh food and 1 box of non-perishable)
  • 40 meal routes - less stops but more deliveries at those stops (2 boxes of fresh food and 1 box of non-perishable)
  • NOTE: Drivers - please only reserve ONE SPOT PER VEHICLE. Please ensure you have space for 4 food boxes.
  • Each driver must have at least one passenger.

All volunteers must register through The Salvation Army volunteer site by copying and pasting the link below into a browser and following the steps. You will be provided with full details, complete volunteer paperwork and choose your preferred shift(s).
