Adopt A Route
The McDowell County Senior Center is in desperate need for volunteers for our Home Delivered meals Program. Please consider Adopting-A-Route to deliver a difference to older adults.
The Adopt-A-Route program provides an excellent way for companies and organizations to engage in the community by delivering a midday meal to homebound older adults in our community. If you are a business owner, manager, or a team leader for a church or social group, please consider the Adopt-A-Route program. If you are an employee of a local company, we ask you to approach your boss or human resources officer about pitching in and supporting our home-delivered meals program and the many homebound individuals in our community we serve.
Adopt-A-Route is an easy and efficient way for companies and groups to give back to the community. To Adopt-A-Route, find individuals who want to participate in covering a weekly route. Your company or organization can adopt a route for one day a week, five days each week, or any number of days in-between. Any level of participation will be welcomed.
Your team of volunteers deliver a midday meal to homebound older adults.
Meals are delivered between 10:45 am and 12:30 pm, Monday-Friday.
Delivery routes consist of 8-12 stops or less and average 1-1.5 hours.
Flexible routes schedules are available!
We also offer mileage reimbursement at .50 per mile. You can accept this reimbursement or donate it back into the McDowell Senior Center’s Home Delivered Meals Program.
Doing good and giving back feels good for all involved.
Employee volunteerism improves performance, increases job satisfaction and encourages teamwork.
McDowell Senior Center brags on our volunteers through our website, newsletter, and social media!
Be part of this win-win situation. Appeal to socially conscious organizations and employees while helping ensure older adults are not forgotten.
