NOTE: This is a remote opportunity, however, volunteers must be located in Santa Clara County.

Want to help keep homebound Meals on Wheels clients engaged?


Write warm, uplifting messages to community members through our Dear Friend project! Postcards and client names will be provided by the Health Trust. These cards will be delivered to clients by Meals on Wheels drivers.

The Health Trust Meals on Wheels program delivers hot meals to homebound seniors and adults throughout Santa Clara County. Meals on Wheels enable many older adults to remain independent, and bring peace of mind to family and friends.

Requirements: online application, onboarding forms, and participate in ongoing training as necessary. Ability to write in Spanish, Vietnamese, and Chinese a plus.

Mission Statement

Our Mission: To build health equity in the Silicon Valley.

Description

Our Vision:

A healthier Silicon Valley for everyone.

How:

We at The Health Trust believe that if Silicon Valley is a community where innovation is changing the world, then it also can be a community where innovation changes the lives of everyone - especially our most vulnerable residents - for the better.

As we strive to make our vision reality, we reflect the values of Silicon Valley. When we tackle a problem, we take the broad view. We rely on expertise, partnerships and best practices to generate solutions that will have the greatest impact on those we serve. We invest in projects that are sustainable, show measurable results and provide the greatest return on investment for the community.

With a strong emphasis on prevention, we focus our work through three initiatives: Healthy Living, Healthy Aging and Healthy Communities. Through direct services, we are helping one person at a time. And through policy advocacy and grantmaking, we are changing the local environment to promote healthy eating, healthy aging and healthy living.
