Community Cooperative

Our Meals on Wheels program is in critical need of volunteers to deliver meals to homebound seniors in Lee County. The role of the volunteer is far more important than the meals they deliver. They are often the only contact our recipients have all day. They provide a warm smile and a caring attitude. They are a safety check to help ensure our recipient's well-being. They are the eyes and ears of Meals On Wheels and often alert us to recipients with additional needs. We are able to schedule most volunteers for service near their home or office.

We are always looking for dependable drivers who are willing to donate 1- 3 hours of time once a week.

Responsibilities:

  • Pick up meals from a designated location near the route
  • Follow the route to deliver meals to clients
  • Communicate concerns and client updates with the Meals on Wheels office
