So, if there is any day that you would like to volunteer, please feel free to contact Volunteer Coordinator Brenda Johnson (919-833-1749 or brenda@wakemow.org ) and let her know you would like to help out -- she will love to hear from you!

The calendar below calendar only schedules one route in downtown Raleigh, but the need exists throughout the county.

Volunteers needed to deliver hot, nutritious lunches to senior residents of Sir Walter Apts. (downtown Raleigh) one day per month from 10:30 am until noon.

Our volunteer calendar is now online! To see a list of open dates, visit https://www.google.com/calendar/render?tab=cc#g%7Cmonth-3+22844+22881+22871

Volunteers will pick up the meals at the Meals on Wheels office near the NCSU campus(1001 Blair Dr., Raleigh 27603). Volunteers will drive to Sir Walter Apts. in downtown Raleigh and deliver the meals. After the meals have been delivered, then carrier containers will be returned to the Meals on Wheels office.

Volunteers should be able to physically lift 20 lbs. and must provide their own transportation.

This job can be done by one person or a pair, so that is just a matter of your personal preference. It looks like a one person slot on the calendar, but please feel free to bring a friend!

Rain Plan:

Except for carrying the meal coolers to/from your car, the rest is all indoors. Meals on Wheels does not operate when it snows, and generally follows the WCPSS closings, which can be found on WRAL on snow days.

Parking Info:

There is no special parking downtown. You can park in any (legal) space, which is mostly metered parking that accept credit/debit cards.
