Volunteer:

 

 

The Meals on Wheels program could not survive without the assistance of the many good hearted men and women of Prescott. The donated hours of labor that our volunteers provide are significant.  In most weeks that number exceeds 160 drivers…equivalent to four full-time employees!

 

Recruitment of volunteers is an ongoing task.   At any given time there are 100 to 150 volunteers required to serve our clientele.

 

The sense of satisfaction of helping those in need provides a powerful incentive to continue contributing to our success.  Volunteers can serve in many capacities and for as many hours as they choose. 

 
Your help as a volunteer is needed in any of the following areas:

 

Dining Room

 

Five days a week meals are served in our friendly and cheerful dining room.  Volunteers are needed to serve on the food line, helping infirm clients with their trays, cleaning up and last but not least preparing over 300 meals per day for delivery to our home bound cliental and those served in our dining room. Typically we have 8 to 10 helpers each day for this activity.  In addition, the dining room has two receptionists who welcome and log in clients as well as receive donations for meals.

 

 Drivers

 

At the present time there are 10 routes for our home bound clientele and drivers are needed each day to ensure that every person on  every route gets their hot meal. Drivers use their own vehicles and receive a nominal 30 cents a mile for fuel.  Routes vary anywhere from 8 to 30 miles.  The number of clients on each route varies substantially and can change from day to day.  Typically a driver will deliver around 15 meals.  Drivers check on the well being of each recipient and enjoy a few minutes of conversation with those who are so inclined.  For many of our clients this is their only daily outside contact.

 

Special Events 

 

Prescott Meals on Wheels hosts several special events each year as part of a community education program and to support our fund-raising efforts.  Volunteers are always needed to help with these efforts.
