Connecting busy New Yorkers to volunteer opportunities - and each other


Saturday June 27, 2009

Registration for this event has passed.

Hand-Delivered Meals to Homebound Seniors

Volunteers hand-deliver hot & cold meals to homebound seniors, who look forward to these much-needed personal visits. Paired in twos, we will delivery meals on foot from Time Square's Encore Senior Center using a hand-driven cart. The routes are short, usually no more than 10 to 12 stops, and there is no need to use other modes of transportation. To ensure that walking doesn't ruin your rest of the Saturday/weekend, please wear comfortable shoes & weather-appropriate clothing. Upon arrival, volunteers will be given a brief orientation before going on deliveries.


Encore Senior Center, 239 West 49th St. between 8th Avenue and Broadway (north side of the street, closer to 8th Ave) Direction: N, R, W to 49th Street 1, C, E to 50th Street

We understand plans change. But if you can't make it to the project, we request you to let us know at the EARLIEST, thus helping us open the spot for another volunteer, as well as plan accordingly for the correct number of routes. If you have any questions, please use the comments when you sign up. Thanks!
