Corporate Adopt-a-Route Program
In Meals on Wheels Adopt-a-Route programs all over North America, companies, organizations and other community groups have discovered that MOW is a tremendous volunteer opportunity for their employees and members.
Many business leaders seek opportunities to give back to the communities in which they work and live. Becoming a MOW corporate volunteer gives them that opportunity. A commitment of two hours per week is required by each corporate sponsor. Corporate teams will deliver meals once per week, on a day and in the area of the company’s choosing. All deliveries are made between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. 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.
Team Coordinator: Will serve as Meals on Wheels’ point-of-contact, and coordinate the collection of application forms and development and distribution of the delivery schedule.
Volunteer Driver: Will be assigned delivery dates by the team coordinator. If you are unable to deliver on your scheduled date, you are responsible for arranging with another volunteer or alternate.
Volunteer Server: If you would like to volunteer, but do not have access to a vehicle, become a volunteer server! Will be assigned delivery dates by the team coordinator, and teamed up with a volunteer driver.
