HOW TO VOLUNTEER
Nothing could be easier than joining our volunteer force of caregivers. We, our care receivers, and the greater community appreciate any help you can give, be it visiting, driving, helping out at our kitchen, or even just making a friend. Just a couple of hours a month could make a difference in the life of a neighbor in Jefferson County. We hope you'll find it as rewarding as others have.
Here's how to get started:
Print out our Volunteer Application Form, fill it out, and return it to our office.
That's it! Now we'll be able to launch you on your own journey of volunteer service to others. Remember, if you need to speak to us in person, call or drop by our offices so we can discuss any concerns you may have.
Note volunteer driver: Our volunteers may request to receive reimbursement for mileage whenever they drive to deliver meals. To learn more, please contact our office during regular business hours.
Note volunteer packer: Any individual handling food to be served to the public, must have a valid Jefferson County Food Handler's card. If you do not currently have a valid food handler's card, you will be advised as to how to obtain your Food Handlerís certification through the Jefferson County Health Department; expenses for certificate can be covered by Meals on Wheels of Jefferson County upon request.
New volunteers are continually recruited and trained. Any commitment of time is appreciated!---once a week, as little as once a month, or seasonally. As a new volunteer, you will work side-by-side with an experienced partner.
The Board of Directors is truly appreciative of the many individuals who give of their time and talents. We acknowledge these selfless acts of love by inviting all of our volunteers to our annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon.
