Delivery of Hot Meals to the Elderly
July 22, 2006Free
Volunteers hand-deliver hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors, who look forward to these much needed meals and personal visits. Teams and individual volunteers help deliver meals from meal centers. The routes are short – usually no more than 10 to 12 stops – so there is time to stop and speak with meal recipients along the way. Volunteers must be 18 years or older. Saturdays from 10:00am – 12:30pm
Encore Senior Center, located at 239 West 49th St. between 8th Ave. and Broadway
Volunteers will either deliver in groups or in pairs. Upon arrival, volunteers will fill out a one-time volunteer form and will be given a brief orientation before going on deliveries. Please let us know as SOON as you know you can’t make a day you’ve committed for.
