Friendly Calling to Isolated Clients of Meals on Wheels

  • Posted 6 months ago
Volunteers are needed to call clients of Meals on Wheels of Central Maryland to check on their safety, health and well-being and help to reduce loneliness. You might be the only person these clients speak with during this time of social distancing. Volunteers will be given 5-10 clients to call and we ask that you speak with them twice a week.  This is a great way to volunteer from the comfort of your home. Meals on Wheels enables people to live independently in their homes by providing food and other needed services.
To volunteer for this opportunity, volunteers would need to complete a volunteer application, attend a virtual orientation and complete a background check.  Volunteers will be given guiding questions.
Commitment: Individuals and/or families can volunteer. Volunteers commit to making at least two calls per week per client.
Location: From home
Restrictions: Volunteers need to be 18+ and Background check.
