Food is essential. And in economically challenging times, access to food becomes more difficult for vulnerable populations.

Right now, many seniors in our community are staying home due to Covid-19 and the delta variant. We need volunteers who can pick up and deliver bags of groceries to seniors once a month.

That's where you come in.

Who are you?

  • A physically able person* with a clean driving record
  • You're non-judgemental and compassionate
  • You care about seniors and want to support those who need help most
  • A resident of Buncombe County, NC, or nearby town

Who are we?

  • The Council on Aging of Buncombe County was formed in 1964 to address the needs of seniors in our community
  • We provide essential support to people over 60 who need assistance with food, heat or a/c, and health care
  • Our volunteers make this work possible-- consider joining us today!

If you want to help make a difference in the lives of real people right here in western North Carolina, we would love to welcome you onboard as a volunteer.

The safety of our clients is our highest priority. Here's what's required for this role:

  • Clear criminal background check and driving record
  • Minimum $100,000/300,000 in auto liability coverage
  • Orientation and training with the Council on Aging
  • A reliable vehicle that will pass NC safety inspection
