Delivery of Meals to Seniors
September 1, 2007Free
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, Sep 1 between 10:00am and 1pm
Meeting Time: 10am
Meeting Place: 351 East 74th St Bet. 1st and 2nd Ave
Upon arrival, volunteers will be given a brief orientation before going on deliveries.
