ADOPT-A-ROUTE

Join up today and become someone’s hero.
Adopt-a-route

Our Adopt-A-Route program was developed to expand our volunteer base by tailoring the volunteer commitment to fit the needs of volunteers in the workplace. When a company signs up for Adopt-A-Route, a group of co-workers join together to assume responsibility for a route on a weekly basis. Adopt-A-Route volunteers take turns delivering meals each week during their lunch hour. This minimal commitment works well within the schedule of the busy workday and employees enjoy the time serving their local community.

 

What to Expect...

  • All deliveries take place between 11:00am and 1:00pm, Monday - Friday, which is no longer than lunch break.
  • Volunteers pick up their route bags from one of our designated drop sites and deliver hot meals to seniors living within their designated route.
  •  One route consists of about 10-12 meals and usually takes no more than an hour to complete.
  • The greater number of volunteers a company can recruit, the less often any one team delivers meals. Companies are asked to have a system in place where individuals can switch their shift with a coworker if needed.

Company Incentives

  • Route is named after sponsor
  • Receive agency recognition on website
  • Social Media posting upon adopting the route
