Volunteer opportunity description

During the height of pandemic, our volunteers delivered 200 meals a day to homebound older adults. Now that booster shots are available, older adults are more comfortable to come and eat in the dining room. A simple act of eating together combats loniless and isolatin. It is especially heartwarming to see younger volunteers serve our older folk. 

Last month, we celebrated 100th birthday of one of our members. 80 persons came out to enjoy lunch and be part of the celebration. As the cold months are starting to set in, we anticipate a rise in the amount of older adults taking lunch with us. And so, we need your caring heart and strong, capable hands. Please join us in taking care of the elderly.
