Volunteering with Meals On Wheels of Northeast Ohio takes a small amount of time, but makes a big difference in the lives of our homebound neighbors.
Every weekday, volunteer drivers cover more than 65 routes in the Stark and Wayne County areas. Deliveries take place Monday through Friday (except holidays). Volunteers arrive at our sites around 10:40, and meals are ready to go out at 10:45.
A typical route takes about an hour to complete, with some rural routes lasting 75 to 90 minutes. We provide training and mileage reimbursement and offer complete, stop-by-stop directionsﾗupdated daily - in a handy, compact tablet.
Most volunteers serve once or twice a week, but others drive every other week, or even once a month. We are grateful for the help and happy to accommodate individual schedules. MOWNEO has 11 sites within Stark and Wayne Counties, including: Alliance, Canton, Canal Fulton, Dalton, Jackson, Louisville, Massillon, Rittman, Uniontown, and Wooster. Volunteers are able to select the site location most convenient for them.
In addition to delivering nutritious meals, volunteers also provide peace of mind. They are often the only people our clients see during the day. If they observe emergency situations or potential health hazards, they call our office so we can notify family or other emergency contacts.
Lives have been saved because of the quick and caring response of MOWNEO volunteers and staff.
