We just can’t say enough about how important volunteers are to our programs. Volunteers help us:
- to serve more people with our existing programs (like Meals on Wheels and Insurance Counseling)
- to improve and expand programs delivered to Senior Center members
- to even offer certain programs that completely rely on volunteers
Please read below about many of our volunteer opportunities.
Meals on Wheels
Kitchen Helpers: These volunteers work 9a – 11a on weekday mornings to help pack up items for our Meals on Wheels clients.
Drivers: A group of 25 churches get together to provide all our drivers for the four Waynesboro Meals on Wheels routes all year long. Members of those churches volunteer when their church is on the schedule.
We do have a couple openings for new churches to join this program. A church would sign up to deliver a certain number of routes (from 1 to 4) for an entire month depending on how their size.
Very dedicated individual volunteers deliver Meals on Wheels to the Fishersville area. Occasionally, one needs to stop serving in this way, which opens a spot for a new volunteer to deliver one day each month all year.
Frozen Meals on Wheels: Volunteers pack an assortment of meals for each client from boxes that contain all one type of meal. This happens a couple days a month for an hour or two each day.
