Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The mission of Meals on Wheels People is to enrich the lives of seniors and assist them in maintaining independence by making nutritious food, social contacts, and other resources accessible. To the extent possible we will also serve disabled and institutionalized individuals. We accomplish this through an organization that is community-based, emphasizes volunteer involvement, and is financially sound.
Make a senior smile! Deliver hot meals in your neighborhood on any day from Monday through Friday. Pick up meals at our centers in the Portland metro area between 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Delivery takes about an hour and a half.
Requirements: must be 18 years old, have a valid driver's license, own your own vehicle and have current auto insurance. Because we serve a frail and vulnerable clientel, all volunteers will be subject to a background check.
Hours: 10:00 a.m. until noon
Help to pack meals in coolers for Meals-On-Wheels drivers. Serve beverages to seniors as the come into the center, set tables, serve lunches, help clean up.
