Immediate Need: Additional Volunteers for Meal Delivery
Our volunteers are a critical part of our operation. The most common volunteer job is delivering meals
and friendly greetings to homebound seniors. Most typically, this involves picking up meals at a central
location and delivering them along a pre-determined route directly to the homes of several seniors in
Rockland County. During the last few days we have had several volunteers throughout the county cancel.
We could really use your help.
Home Delivered Meal Delivery Drivers Needed
Our volunteers are a critical part of our operation. Pick up meals at a Meals On Wheels Central commissary, deliver
the meals to the homes of seniors in Rockland County.
We collaborated with Rockland County Office for the Aging to deliver grocery items to our seniors at home.
Bread, milk, eggs, toilet paper. Small amounts to help them get through the pandemic. This week we received so many
calls with appreciation for receiving groceries. We will continue to make this part of our operation to uphold our mission:
To enhance the wellness of Rockland older adults and their families by providing services that support their safety,
independence and health.
Where To Pick Up Your Groceries
When entering the parking lot stop at the Senior Activity Center entrance in the front of the building (the door just
past the main entrance to Meals On Wheels). Inform the grocery coordinators your route number. A coordinator will bring
the bags of groceries right to your vehicle. Once all groceries are loaded in your vehicle, proceed around to the back
to pick up your meals.
Please note: Not all on your route will receive the groceries. You will be provided a list of those on your
route who are eligible. If a client does not receive and wish to receive, please instruct them to call Meals On Wheels 845-624-6325
