A Few Hours a Week Means a World of Difference
Here at Meals on Wheels of Ocean County, we depend on the dedication and generosity of our team of volunteers to help us with our mission of feeding every hungry senior. Fortunately, all Meals on Wheels routes have a full driving roster right now but there is always more to be done. So…
What can I do?
We are actively seeking volunteers for Telephone Reassurance and Friendly Visitors. This is one of our most vital services, providing much-needed contact with our most vulnerable seniors. Here’s why:
Imagine, you live far from your friends or loved ones and there is no one that can check in daily to make sure that they are ok. Our volunteer callers and visitors provide wellness checks and much-needed social contact. For isolated and lonely seniors, these calls and visits are truly a lifeline.
What does it take?
Providing a friendly voice and social contact to our seniors is an essential component of our mission. That makes this the single most important job for volunteers. We provide all the training, and matching with seniors.
