Return to RSVP – Retired and Senior Volunteer Program

Meals to the homebound

Home-Delivered Meals–Milestones Area Agency on Aging:

This station works with Milestones AAA to deliver hot meals to elderly homebound individuals. It is one day a week, about an hour each time. As the volunteer, you pick up the food and deliver one meal to each house on your route. Your route could be in Mount Pleasant, Salem, or Winfield, depending on your need.  This service is a lifeline to the participants. They report that their daily visit from the volunteer is often the only human contact they have each day, in addition to providing them with a daily meal. It is both physical and emotional nourishment; therefore, the best volunteers in this station are ones who have a caring heart for the loneliness the clients often experience.
