Holiday Meal Program
Hundreds of volunteers are needed on each of three major holidays:
Easter Sunday | Thanksgiving Day | Christmas Day
The Holiday Meal Program includes two main roles for volunteers to choose from:
Delivery Drivers are responsible for all of the following:
Pick up ready-to-eat meals (will be loaded in your car by food-line support volunteers)
Drive meals to the assigned apartment building
Deliver meals to each registered senior on list
Provide warm smiles and joyful holiday wishes!
Food Line & Support
Food-Line Helpers are responsible for (1) of the following:
Scoop food into containers (ie. mashed potatoes)
Box sealed containers (10 containers per box)
Run/load boxes to delivery drivers' cars
Each of our holiday meals come with an adorable placemat that is artfully crafted by a kiddo. We always need about 4,000 placemats for each holiday.
Each placemat is like a hug that goes with the meal, and are usually taped to our seniors' fridges!
