Deliver Thanksgiving Meals to Older Adults

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Somerville-Cambridge Elder Services

  • 10 people are interested
Delivery

On Thanksgiving Day, our paid Meals-on-Wheels drivers have the holiday off, so we operate the meal delivery with volunteers! 

Approximately 35 drivers (possibly accompanied by a "runner") are needed to deliver Meals on Wheels to home bound seniors in Somerville and Cambridge. We especially would like help from volunteers who can drive their personal vehicle, and we encourage drivers to team together with members of their own household.

It's not necessary to drive! We're also looking for Logistics volunteers to help pack meals in thermal bags for the delivery routes and to help direct traffic in our parking lot to keep arrivals orderly. Logistics volunteers are asked to arrive at 8:45 am.

This event is popular with people who are looking to do something meaningful and show thanks for their own blessings.  COVID-19-vaccinated children are welcome to volunteer with parental supervision.

Takes place annually, on Thanksgiving morning from 9:30 am - 12:30 pm.
