Consider the difference you can make for someone who can no longer access the basic necessities of life. Meals on Wheels of Collin County is looking for people who can donate volunteer time or material assistance in the form of contributions and donations. There are a number of different types of programs that you can participate in.
Our volunteer opportunities include:
- Delivering meals through the Meals on Wheels program
- Administrative support in our office
- Shelf stable holiday and bad weather meals meal assembly
- Special events
- Holiday Programs
We could not deliver meals throughout Collin County without our volunteers. The volunteers not only bring a hot, nutritious lunch, but also connect with otherwise isolated seniors. Whether you have a lot of time or just a little, we can use your talents. Volunteers come from all walks of life – men, women, young and old, professionals, homemakers with children, and retirees – anyone who has a genuine interest in helping our valued elderly neighbors.
Did You Know?
- We need a minimum of 75 volunteers each day to deliver over 700 meals daily.
- Volunteers deliver meals to homebound seniors in cities throughout Collin County, so you could give back to the community in which you live.
- There are one-time volunteer opportunities available around the holidays. Create Fall Harvest Boxes and/or become a Secret Santa.
