Volunteer

New Dawn Meals on Wheels relies on dedicated volunteers to deliver meals — our volunteers are the heart of the organization!

We are always in need of new volunteers!

We will provide you with the training and tools you need to make a difference in the lives of seniors and vulnerable people living in our community. Delivering for Meals on Wheels takes just 1-2 hours per week! Prefer to help in the kitchen? A volunteer shift is only three hours. Volunteering with New Dawn Meals on Wheels is also a great opportunity to socialize and meet new people.
