Senior Connections Meals On Wheels Service Day
Join DeKalb Chamber, November 4, 2016, from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM in a Meals On Wheels Service Day.
Meals on Wheels provides nutritious, daily meals to seniors throughout DeKalb County. Senior Connections, the Meals on Wheels agency for DeKalb County, relies on staff and volunteers to deliver meals Monday through Saturday to housebound seniors.
Twenty-five (25) volunteers along with the Chamber staff will partner with Senior Connections to work in kitchen production on a variety of tasks including plating food for Meals on Wheels program, bagging bread, making and packing boxes and assisting with food preparation.
Shift 1: 15 volunteers will arrive at or before 9:00 AM, receive a briefing on what is required for the Kitchen service, and then work directly with Kitchen staff to do meal preparation.
Shift 2: 10 volunteers will deliver meals starting around 10:00 Noon with 6-9 stops. Routes projected to end by 1:00 PM.
We want to give back! Will you join us and help us to do it in a meaningful way?
Serving our senior community through Meals on Wheels is an excellent opportunity to show them that we care. Volunteers who make these deliveries are sometimes the only people our seniors will see for the day. Our visit is important! This presents an incredible opportunity for us to take a moment to listen, smile, and show genuine interest while checking on the status of their health and condition.
If you have a heart to volunteer, can bring your smile, and a willingness to help, then we want you to join us for what promises to be a fun-filled day! If you have a preference for either shift, please indicate in the Comments section when registering. The commitment for Shift 2 Route assignments must be secured as soon as possible.
