Citymeals-On-Wheels
May 25, 2011

Citymeals offers flexible scheduling and many ways to contribute whether that's delivering meals, visiting the elderly, replying to letters or offering the organization administrative assistance during particularly high volume periods. The staff at Citymeals are supportive and always on hand to answer questions. You really feel like you make a difference and the impact you make is instantaneous. When you ring a senior's doorbell, you can see how grateful they are that you took the time to make sure they have food for the next few days.

Citymeals-On-Wheels
January 3, 2010

Citymeals offers a flexible volunteer schedule and various ways to contribute to their cause. I am a part of and am particularly fond of their Young Professionals program, which hosts monthly events where volunteers get to know each other by delivering meals together and then having brunch or drinks afterward. Citymeals also provides multiple ways to contribute from meal delivery to letter writing so we are not restricted in the ways we can help. The Citymeals administrators and organizers that I've met have been approachable, helpful, and always prepared to guide beginner volunteers.
