Volunteers are needed to assist with Meals On Wheels
SourcePoint’s Meals on Wheels program is in immediate need of volunteers to assist with prepping meal trays and coolers for delivery of hot lunches to homebound seniors. Volunteer “packers” pack, seal, and stamp food trays from 7-11am and must be able to stand most of the shift. Volunteer “runners” load packed coolers into volunteers’ vehicles from 10:15am-1:15pm. This position requires standing, pushing, and lifting 15lbs. The work is fast and fun and lunch is free! All onsite volunteers and staff wear masks and submit to bi-weekly COVID-19 testing.
SourcePoint provides community support for older adults with in-home care services such as Meals on Wheels, help with chores, and transportation to medical appointments, as well as resources and support for family caregivers. They are a source for both fun and fitness for older adults. SourcePoint was founded by volunteers, and they continue to remain a vital key to their success. Volunteers are welcome to get involved, whether for just one day, or for an ongoing experience.
