Volunteer Opportunities

THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING FOR MEALS ON WHEELS!

There are many ways for you to volunteer with our program.  

  • As a Permanent Driver
  • As a Substitute Driver
  • Events and Fundraising
  • Pet food bagging

If you or your business would be interested in adopting a route, please fill out the application here or contact our Program Supervisor today or call the office at 828-356-2442.

We're glad you have joined our team to serve nutritious meals to Haywood County seniors.  Not only will you be serving a healthy meal to your Haywood County Neighbors, but you will also serve as a safety check and brighten a recipient's day.  Not to mention, the benefits you will experience while volunteering!

We ask that all meals are delivered by noon-ish, and each route could take about 2 hours.

SAMPLE ROUTE SHEET

All route sheets are numbered in the order suggested by google maps. However, volunteers can deliver meals in whatever order they choose.  We will/can provide these google directions in paper form.  Click for SAMPLE ROUTE SHEET.

SOMETHING TO KEEP IN MIND:

Special bonds form between volunteers and recipients.  Please be aware that routes change occasionally, and you may find a recipient has been removed from your route and placed on another due to logistics of route size, area, GIS mapping, etc.  We have to make decisions for the good of the program as a whole.  When you develop a special bond with a recipient, please discuss sharing information with them in advance.  You are welcome to phone or visit a recipient if they are moved to another route, hospitalized, or in a rehab facility.
