MOW Volunteers: Packing and Loading Meals

Next date is Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021 from 9:00am to 11:30am (CT)

About

Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, the Meals on Wheels program has changed the way they are delivering food to their clients.  The homebound seniors that receive meals through the program have a frozen 7-pack of meals delivered weekly instead of daily.  

Volunteers are needed to help prepare food boxes for delivery that takes place on Wednesday mornings. Volunteers will be assisting with packing juice into 250 plus bags and assist with loading vehicles of the volunteers delivering food!  This activity will be done outside in a covered area, social distancing is observed.  Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes (t-shirt, leggings/jeans, tennis shoes) as you will be on your feet the entire time.

Effective 01/20/2021 Delivery volunteers will pick-up meals at the new UWCA building.  Volunteers packing and loading meals will come to the new building as well to begin volunteering.
