SAN DIEGO – Meals on Wheels San Diego County, a local nonprofit that focuses on supporting the independence and well-being of seniors, is desperately seeking volunteers to help deliver meals to clients throughout San Diego County.
“Our volunteers deliver more than meals, they deliver warm smiles with each visit,” says Brent Wakefield, president and CEO, Meals on Wheels San Diego County. “Due to the pandemic, the increase in client needs and the demand for our services has made it difficult for us to find enough volunteers to help service all of our meal centers.”
Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of one shift per month. Delivery days are Monday through Saturday, from approximately 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. A background check is required, as well as an active driver’s license and proof of auto insurance. Virtual training is provided, including how to safely deliver during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The organization accepts individual and family volunteers, as well as groups and businesses. Interested persons can visit the Steps to Volunteer Checklist, which provides details on how to sign up as a volunteer.
