MOW delivers meals to older adults, homebound adults, adults with disabilities, and those convalescing. There are a number of ways you can support Meals on Wheels during this time:
Phone Calling: We have established a volunteer phone brigade to call recipients each weekday when they would normally be receiving a meal. Volunteers will be supplied with a call sheet, basic script, and instructions on how to share information gathered with the office.
Meal Delivery: A call for volunteers will be sent when our next frozen meal delivery date is set. We are not accepting any baked goods at this time. We are grateful for our wonderful bakers and will be back in touch when we resume regular deliveries.
Emergency Food and Supply Boxes: Volunteers have been a great source of supplies for and putting together of, emergency food and supply boxes. For details on what goes into making a complete box or a general list of items needed, please click here. Completed boxes and supplies can be delivered to CHCMOW office at 632 Laurel Hill Road (St Thomas More South Campus) between 10am-3pm M, T, W and on Thursdays between 9-10:30am or 1-3pm. Leave items on the cart or by the door with the sign for CHCMOW. You can leave items (on a nice day) even if someone is not there as we may have just stepped out momentarily and will be back before 3PM.
If you are interested in volunteering in any capacity (shelf-stable food sorter, set-up, delivery, phone-caller) and have not already done so, please contact Heather Harris, Volunteer Coordinator, at email@example.com. We understand that everyone has to make the best decisions for their own health and safety. Even if you volunteer and decide later that you are not comfortable or able, just let us know.
