Review for Meals on Wheels and Senior Outreach Services, Walnut Creek, CA, USA

Rating: 4 stars  

When I was looking for a nonprofit to volunteer with, I liked the sound of this one from a newspaper article about one volunteer and the friend she had been visiting through this program. I have not been disappointed. I was matched with a senior over two years ago who was at first hesitant with my visits. Over time, I know I have become as important to her as she is to me. There are so many more people whose lives could be enriched by this rewarding program.

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

the friendship I have developed with a wonderful 90 year old plus resident of a residential care facility.

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

not. I believe that new innovative changes are already being made. I just hope that adequate numbers of people volunteer to reach out to those of us who will be older shoes in the next decades!

Role:  Volunteer & visit about 1 1/2 hour a week .
