Meals On Wheels Volunteer Drivers Needed

Are you interested in helping the seniors in Orleans County? Do you have some extra time on your hands? We have the perfect opportunity for you!

The Arc of Orleans County’s Nutrition Program —Nutri-Fair/Meals on Wheels is in need of volunteer drivers for several routes in Orleans County. 

Volunteers begin their shift at 10:45 am. The current routes take 1 to 2.5 hours to complete. You can volunteer Monday through Friday, once a week, or monthly—it’s your choice. Perhaps you would like to team up with your spouse or a friend and drive a route together!

Volunteers must have their own vehicle, a valid NYS Drivers License, and be able to lift up to 20 lbs. Volunteer drivers will receive a mileage reimbursement that changes in conjunction with fluctuating gas prices.

If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of seniors in Orleans County by becoming a volunteer driver, please contact Denise Withey at (585)589-5516 ext. 227 or Vicki Havholm at (585)589-7817.  

This Program is run by The Arc of Orleans County
in partnership with the Office For The Aging.
