MEALS_ON_WHEELS_12258705_t500Special volunteer opportunities are available throughout the year.

Holiday Deliveries

We deliver meals on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Memorial Day and Labor Day. If you, and/or your family, would like to get involved, give us a call.

Blizzard Box Deliveries

We provide a box of 5 shelf stable meals for all of our meal recipients in the event that we are unable to deliver due to bad weather. These boxes can be delivered during the day, evening or on weekends (usually during October or very early November).

Poinsettia Deliveries

During the first part of December, we provide poinsettias to all of our meal recipients to recognize the joy of the season.

Christmas Gifts

We participate in “Be a Santa to a Senior” and an Angel Tree program for our meal recipients that might not receive a Christmas present otherwise. Opportunities to help deliver gifts are available.

Birthday Boxes

We provide a birthday box to each of our meal recipients on their special day. This is a wonderful opportunity for organizations or individuals to fill and wrap boxes that will be especially meaningful.
