Connecting busy New Yorkers to volunteer opportunities - and each other


Saturday January 26, 2008

Registration for this event has passed.

Delivery of Meals to Seniors

Volunteers hand-deliver hot/cold, nutritious meals to homebound seniors, who look forward to these much needed meals and personal visits. Volunteers help deliver meals on foot from Encore Senior Center. Like this note says, we deliver on foot and there is no need for a car and there is no need to use the subway.

We will NOT carry them but push/pull the same on a hand driven cart! The routes are short; usually no more than 10 to 12 stops. To ensure that walking doesn't ruin your rest of the Saturday/weekend, please wear comfortable shoes. Volunteers must be 18 years or older.

Date/Time: Saturday, January 26 between 10:00am and 12:30pm

Direction: N, R, W to 49th Street 1, C, E to 50th Street

Meeting Time: 10am

Meeting Place: Encore Senior Center, 239 West 49th St. between 8th Avenue and Broadway

Upon arrival, volunteers will be given a brief orientation before going on deliveries. 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. Thanks in advance!
