Connecting busy New Yorkers to volunteer opportunities - and each other

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 Encore Senior Center-- there is no need for a car and there is no need to use the subway-- using 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 & weather-appropriate clothing. Date/Time: Saturday, between 10:00am and 12:30pm Direction: N, R, W to 49th Street 1, C, E to 50th Street 10am 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.
