Volunteering is an important aspect of many people’s lives. It is good for your mind, can help you feel more fulfilled, connect you to others, and give you a sense of purpose. Overall, it gives people a good feeling that they can only receive by helping someone else.
PVI could not function without our volunteers. They are an active part of all our programs, from the lunch servers at Little House to senior companions at Rosener House to packers and drivers for Meals on Wheels. As our programs grow to serve more seniors we always need additional help. Meals on Wheels is doubling their service area, with 100 more meals being delivered each day. With 1 in 7 seniors struggling with hunger, this expansion lets us reach a whole new group of seniors. Our program is able to deliver hot meals to seniors who live alone and are not able to shop or cook because of illnesses, disabilities, etc. We deliver in San Mateo County from San Bruno to East Palo Alto.
How can you help?
We are in need of more drivers for each weekday to provide hot meals to a growing group of seniors. We require volunteers to be available between 9:30 AM to 12 PM and to use their own vehicle and gasoline. If you are interested in volunteering as a Meals on Wheels driver or have any questions, please contact Victoria Cormack at email@example.com or 650-326-0665 ext. 5108
