Want to volunteer, but feel that you can’t because you work during the day? Then you should form an Office Delivery Team! If your organization (large or small) is looking for ways to volunteer, Metro Meals on Wheels is a great place to start.
Office Delivery Teams may consist of two or more individuals who agree to take turns delivering meals to homebound citizens in Ada County. Deliveries take place anywhere between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and are designed to take no longer than an hour. Meals are provided for the volunteers so they don’t have to take any more time away from work than is necessary.
By scheduling deliveries out over the course of a year, your Office Delivery Team can block out time far in advance. Once a month is a good frequency for most volunteers; it’s not an overwhelming time commitment, but yet frequent enough for volunteers to develop familiarity with the route and get to know the seniors.
Companies that currently have Office Delivery Teams include Boise Parks & Recreation, Micron, Power Engineers, and Group One. If your workplace is interested in forming an Office Delivery Team, or you would like more information, contact Cheryl Johnson, Metro Meals on Wheels Volunteer Coordinator, at 208-321-0031, or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to your workplace joining this much-rewarding volunteer opportunity!
