January Charity Event: Meals on Wheels
We were so busy with our big Grand Opening that we didn't get a chance to tell you about our January charity event! For our January charity event we delivered food for Meal on Wheels! Meals and Wheels is an organization that delivers meals to home bound senior citizens. To Qualify an individual must be 60 years of age or older and assessed as homebound to receive Meals on Wheels.
We packed up our car to deliver to 6 seniors in the Glendale area! Everyone we met was so sweet and was so excited to be recieving their meals. We even assisted one woman in adding the food to her fridge.
Volunteers of America's Meals on Wheels program is in need of friendly and dependable volunteers who are looking to make a difference in the lives of home-bound seniors in their communities. The more volunteers who give their time, the more seniors in need receive hot, nutritious meals.
Meals on Wheels volunteer drivers deliver hot or frozen meals to seniors who anticipate the healthy lunch and comforting smile of a volunteer each delivery day. Delivery routes are available in Denver, Jefferson, and Arapahoe Counties, Monday – Saturday, and each route only takes about one to two hours to complete. In this short time, volunteers can help to ensure that these seniors stay safe, healthy, and happy in their own homes. Deliver once a week, once a month or as your schedule allows.
Delivering Meals on Wheels is about much more than just dropping off a plate of food. You might be the only visitor Meals on Wheels clients sees each day and your contact with them is so important for their spirit and wellbeing. Delivering meals helps seniors stay in their homes and truly impacts lives!
Any one can deliver meals for Meals on Wheels you just need to pass a quick back ground check. This little adventure only took about an hour and a half! Just an hour and a half to provide meals for someone in need for an entire week! Their office is located in RiNo at 2660 Larimer St., Denver, CO 80205. Get involved and donated your time like we did!
