Meals delivery volunteer

Feeling Blessed? Looking for a way to give back?

norVOLution is looking for volunteers to deliver meals to area seniors. Every weekday, we provide meals to older adults in our area. Meal delivery volunteers help us ensure that older adults continue to get quality food at low prices as well as provide a "daily hello" and wellness check to our clients. Join a wonderful team of volunteers -- many who have done this for years. It is a very rewarding one-on-one volunteer experience and the time commitment is minimal.

Drivers pick up meals from Norwood Crossing each day by 11:00 a.m. Hot lunch meals are transported in heat retaining carriers and light dinners in brown paper bags. Lunch and dinner meals are labeled with the name/address of recipient. Detatiled delivery route maps are provided.

Meals are delivered Monday through Friday between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Total maximum time volunteers serve is approximately 1½ hours (11:00 a.m. thru 1:00 p.m.) per day.

Frequency of Volunteer Commitment:

Volunteers are expected to make a minimum commitment of every other week for a minimum of three months.

Benefits of your commitment:

• Work a schedule that fits your lifestyle, whether once per week, twice a month, or three days per week. • Your visit provides a brief but important connection to seniors that are homebound • More seniors receive low-cost meals on a timely basis • On the day you work, you may treat yourself to a free hot lunch in our employee lunchroom • As a volunteer, you are entitled to a 25% discount in the Norwood Life Society Thrift Shop

Qualifications:

• Must be 18 years or older • Must have access to a car under which the volunteer is insured • Must have a valid Illinois driver's license • Must support the goal of the Norwood Park Seniors Network to help seniors maintain their independence

Special Training: None

Reporting to: Norwood Park Seniors Network, Program Coordinator

Volunteers Needed: 5

Other Comments:

This is a popular program for our clients and volunteers and is growing quickly.
