Connecting busy New Yorkers to volunteer opportunities - and each other


Saturday December 27, 2008

Registration for this event has passed.

Hand-Delivered Meals to Homebound Seniors

Volunteers hand-deliver hot/cold, nutritious meals to homebound seniors, who look forward to these much-needed personal visits. Upon arrival, volunteers will be given a brief orientation before going on deliveries. Volunteers help deliver meals on foot from Encore Senior Center, using a hand-driven cart-- there is no need for a car and there is no need to use the subway. The routes are short usually no more than 10 to 15 stops. To ensure that walking doesn't ruin your rest of the Saturday/weekend, please wear comfortable shoes, as well as weather-appropriate clothing. Direction: N, R, W to 49th Street 1, C, E to 50th Street Encore Senior Center, 239 West 49th St. between 8th Avenue and Broadway


Encore Senior Center Cafeteria, 239 West 49th St. between 8th Avenue and Broadway (north side of the 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. If you have any question, please use the comments when you sign up. Thanks!
