Citymeals-On-Wheels
December 27, 2009

I have been volunteering for City Meals on Wheels, on and off, for over a year and a half. The homebound elderly certainly do appreciate this service and it is both rewarding and fulfilling to assist a nonprofit organization such as City Meals on Wheels.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

receiving positive feedback from the eldely, some of which remember your face from time to time. I have also had a friend recently donate $100 to City Meals on Wheels because he knew this organization was one I volunteered for.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

create a blog or website which has an updated calendar for each Meals on Wheels location, how many volunteers they have for each day/weekend, etc.. so that I could help the center that needs volunteers the most vs. returning to the same center.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

helpiing the homebound elderly receive meals and seeing how happy they are to converse with a person/volunteer.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly, appreciative and communicated well.

Ways to make it better...

My experiences are good most of the time. Occasionally there will be 1-2 typo's on the delivery/address sheet.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Volunteers and funding
