 According to the Census in 2010, approximately 40,000 residents in the nine counties we serve are age 60 or better. While these numbers grow, our funding from federal, state and local sources does not. We must depend on people throughout the community to help us maintain and expand the many programs we offer to help keep our friends, neighbors and family secure, healthy and in their own homes. In fact, we depend on private donations for nearly 30% of our operating budget. Many of the people we serve are below or near the poverty line and therefore have little left to contribute toward the services that they need and use. Your help can go a long way.

 


Help a Senior In Need

Our Meals On Wheels program needs volunteers for driving,  special events and office help.

If you are interested in any of these volunteer positions please call or email us.

 


 


Senior hunger is a silent epidemic that can be easily ended.  Won't you help us get the word out.


If you have a group who would benefit from a presentation on our services or a senior who could use help please let us know.


Please join our e-mail or mailing list to receive our newsletter and updates on important legislation impacting the funding of senior hunger programs.


Please go to our contacts page and let us know you would like to help.


  • For as little as $120/yr or $10 per month you can assist our elderly 
  • With 1 in 7 seniors at risk of going hungry won't you help?

Special Events

​All Meals On Wheels programs have events and fundraisers that require extra help – including planning and organizing, publicity, onsite setup  and much more. Ask your local program if there are upcoming events that you can help with.

Drivers pick up meals at a central location and then follow a specific route, making several stops along the way to deliver to Meals On Wheels recipients. Sometimes a driver works with a volunteer “runner,” who takes the meal from the car to the door of a senior's home.
