Volunteer

Join the network of hundreds of Rockland County residents who are making a difference in the lives of older adults across Rockland County. By donating your lunch break, you can deliver meals to older adults who are homebound, provide assistance in a Senior Activity Center or assist in the Adult Day Care of Rockland located at the Bobbi Lewis Center. Not available at lunch? Donate your time by preparing and packing the meals early in the morning or help with administrative, outreach and fundraising efforts. All Meals on Wheels programs rely on the support of invaluable volunteers.

Testimonial from Jackie/Driver, Valley Cottage Route:

"I had a friend who did something similar (to this) in the city and I thought it was a nice idea and I had a little extra time. I find it rewarding. I drive once a week to 8 homes, it takes about an hour to an hour and a half a week...it's serving a need and (I enjoy) seeing the people, they seem to really appreciate it."

Loss Of A Treasured Volunteer

Our hearts are heavy at the loss of one of our treasured volunteers. Stephen Brady delivered MOW Route 9 faithfully in the Nyack/Nanuet area for 5 years. Delivering food and doing safety/health checks in the aging population was the perfect fit for the type of man he was. Stephen was always willing to step in and help out in any area if there was a need to fill. He loved catching up with our retired FDNY volunteers and having a laugh when he came to pick up his coolers. His smile and happy go lucky attitude about life were infectious. He was a true man of service, always taking care of our clients and making us proud to have such a caring person on the job. Stephen will be truly missed by our staff and the clients we serve. We believe he will be smiling down on us and the work we do knowing that we will continue to care for his community. Rest in Peace Stephen and thank you for your years of service.

Volunteer Tara Conklin

When Tara Conklin was looking to volunteer she immediately thought of Meals on Wheels, as her grandmother is a recipient in California. Tara has volunteered for us for two years both in the commissary and as a homebound meal route driver. Tara loves that she can bring her children (ages 3, 6 and 8) with her to deliver meals so that they learn how important it is to volunteer and because she knows the seniors love it! Tara also leads a Girl Scout Daisy troop and worked with her scouts to create Valentine's Day cards for the homebound meal participants on her route.
