Hand-Delivered Meals to Homebound Seniors
February 28, 2009Free
Volunteers hand-deliver hot/cold, nutritious meals to homebound seniors, who look forward to these much-needed personal visits. Volunteers help deliver meals on foot from Encore Senior Center– there is no need for a car and there is no need to use the subway– volunteers deliver meals 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.

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 questions, please use the comments when you sign up. Thanks!
