Meals on Wheels Durham offers a variety of volunteer opportunities to make lasting impacts on older adults in the community. You can delivers meals- and smiles-to clients each weekday, help pack and load meals onto delivery vehicles, or even check in on seniors in the comfort of your own home. We have something for everybody!

Meals on Wheels of Durham is seeking volunteers to make phone calls to our
home-bound senior clients.

Call our seniors in Durham. You can call from anyplace you have access to the internet and a computer.

Calls are made on Wednesdays and/or Fridays from your remote location. You will receive that day's "Wellness Sheet" via email at 8am. Calls can be made between 9am and noon. Each route averages 30 minutes (10-14 clients). Sign up for up to 4 routes per day.

  • Wednesday Wellness Calls: On Wednesday, you will be collecting information from clients regarding their weekly delivery. It is so important for MOWD to know if clients can be home and to remind clients the importance of being home during their delivery! This directly supports our ability to order the correct amount of food while also ensuring as many of our current clients are being served the best way possible! This is also the last day our clients can cancel their meals.
  • Friday Wellness Calls: Think of this as 'FUN Friday!’. On Friday you will be connecting with clients and checking in on them. This is a great way to encourage relationship building and is something that our clients look forward to!

Soon after registering for this opportunity through VolunteerMatch, you will receive an email from Meals on Wheels Durham inviting you to register in our system. Once you have registered you will receive an email with the link to sign up for a shift in our Scheduler program.
