Group Volunteer Opportunities
Meals on Wheels Central Texas has been so lucky to have so many wonderful teams join us for deliveries. We have teams made up of friends, coworkers, church groups, school groups, and more. If you want to get a feel for who Meals on Wheels Central Texas is with your corporate or community-based team we have a couple of great 1-time volunteer opportunities available to you.
If you are looking to start a regular volunteer team but want a taste of what it looks like to deliver with Meals on Wheels, join us for our deliver-in-a-day program. This is a great way to experience how we operate daily.
If you are looking for information about Meals on Wheels Central Texas and want to help make some cards for our clients, join us for our card-making day.
Deliver in a day
Deliver in a Day is a great way to experience how the Meals on Wheels meal delivery program operates. Each weekday our kitchen cooks up to about 3,000 meals, and more than half of those meals are delivered by wonderful Meals on Wheels volunteers. Typically the time commitment for this program is from 10:30am-12:00/12:30pm. This includes the orientation, distribution, and delivery of meals to our homebound neighbors in East Austin.
Registrations and the online training video will need to be completed by each team member before this day. Each route is designed to take 1 hour or less and may have 5-10 clients on the route. This does require volunteers split into groups of 2-4 when delivering routes and all drivers on this route will need to be 18+.
For more information or to participate in this volunteer opportunity please email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call volunteer services at 737-218-4260
Card Making Day
Corporate or School volunteer opportunity for your group to visit our main headquarters at 3227 East 5th Street and learn about Meals on Wheels Central Texas, participate in a tour of our building, and decorate some cards for our clients.
Come to our office and learn about who we are and what we are doing in the Central Texas community. Get a tour of our building and kitchen, then help us to decorate some cards that will be passed out to our homebound neighbors. If you are interested we would love to schedule a 1-2 hour visit with your team. (Max of 20-25 persons per group)
