Delivery of Meals to Seniors
February 24, 2007Free
Volunteers hand-deliver hot/cold, nutritious meals to homebound seniors, who look forward to these much needed meals and personal visits. Teams and individual 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; so there is time to stop and speak with meal recipients along the way. 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, Feb 24 between 10:00am and 12:30pm
Contact: Muthu at Muthu@StreetProject.org
Direction: N, R, W to 49th Street
1, C, E to 50th Street
Encore Senior Center, 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.
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!
