Help homebound Seniors and adults with disabilities by delivering Meals on Wheels in the Rockland area. Hunger is a serious threat facing many older adults and individuals with disabilities. The nutrition service, Meals on Wheels, is provided Monday through Friday to individuals who are home-bound due to illness, disability, or geographic isolation. The Rockland COA needs Meals on Wheels drivers! Contact us today to get started, we're flexible and will work with your schedule. You can volunteer one day, multiple days, or be a back up driver, whatever works with your schedule. Mileage reimbursed. Bring a smile and a meal to a senior in the Rockland community!
