Delivering meals to seniors is a great way to volunteer. norVOLution, Norwood Life Society’s volunteer program engages all kinds and combinations of volunteers: individuals, husbands and wives, parents and kids, grandparents with grandchildren, friends, companies, retired folks and young people who need service hours. Our service area is the far northwest side of the city, Park Ridge, Harwood Heights and Norridge. A commitment of no more than 2 hours per week is required with our volunteers making about 7-10 deliveries. We need weekly drivers and those who could be "on call". Regular weekly drivers are given the same route each week so they get to know their seniors. It's a wellness check as much as meals delivery.
Free lunch is available for volunteers. and 25% off every day at the Norwood Life Society Thrift Shop!
