Volunteer Opportunities

We are monitoring the pandemic and we hope to have volunteers join us once again to ensure the success of Easter Holiday Meals on Wheels.

Due to current public health concerns, volunteers could be exposed to or expose others to COVID-19 while performing volunteer duties and must follow protective measures implemented by the Service and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).” With that said, we do require masks and physical distancing while volunteering.
