The past two years, we’ve served more Northern Illinois seniors than ever before. It’s all possible only because of our amazing volunteers!
We’re still getting more and more requests for home-delivered meals. To keep up with the demand, we urgently need more neighbors like you to help with delivery.
Would you consider volunteering to deliver nutritious meals to seniors in your area?
As a volunteer, you’ll make a life-changing difference for every senior you serve. In fact, you might be the only person your seniors interact with each day. Your smiling face and caring visit provide life-affirming hope that’s every bit as important as the hot, wholesome food you drop off.
Earl and Jeannie began volunteering in April 2020. Two years later, they’re more committed than ever to helping older adults in our community.
“We figured we could sit home or we could be part of the solution,” Earl says. “People need to eat.”
Earl and Jeannie quickly realized that the food they bring with them is just one part of what makes Meals on Wheels so special — and so important — to local seniors.
They’ve trudged through knee-high snow to bring meals to the door. They even carry in the newspaper or the mail to make life a little easier for their senior friends. Every time they make a delivery, they let seniors know they’re not alone … that someone will be there for them no matter what.
Please, join Earl and Jeannie and volunteer to help seniors in your neighborhood. Your kindness truly changes lives!
