Volunteers, along with our donors, are the life blood of our organization. There are many ways to get involved, either through our Rental and Mortgage Assistance Program, our Business Development Center, or any of our other programs. We are always in need of dedicated people with a passion for helping others. Our volunteers serve as mentors to our youth and aspiring entrepreneurs. They assist with office work. By far, however, our largest group of volunteers are with our Meals on Wheels program.
Meals on Wheels
The meals-on-wheels program could not survive if it were not for our 500- plus wonderful volunteers who are “ready, willing and able” to deliver meals to elderly and homebound individuals. Ask any volunteer and they will tell you it is a very rewarding experience for them, as well as a much appreciated service for the recipients.
The demand for home delivered meals is growing, as is the need for volunteers. Since our volunteers staff over 75 different meal routes throughout Monmouth County, we have a need for volunteers from all areas of the County. In most cases, our delivery routes take about one hour to complete. We need volunteers with vehicles who can deliver meals one day a week or every day, whatever works for you! We also need volunteers who are available to fill in as substitutes when needed. We realize that volunteers take vacations and have unforeseen situations come up on occasion – and that is why we recruit substitutes. If you are concerned about finding the location to make your delivery, we have state-of-the-art computer printed maps to take you directly to your destination. Don’t let anything be a deterrent to becoming a volunteer. We promise you a most joyous and fulfilling experience!
