Northwest Assistance Ministries Prepares to Resume Daily Meals on Wheels Deliveries
HOUSTON, TX -- Northwest Assistance Ministries’ (NAM’s) Meals on Wheels (MOW) program is urgently in need of volunteers to assist with delivering meals to homebound seniors as it resumes daily meal deliveries on June 1, 2022.
Since the pandemic shut-down in the spring of 2020, NAM has relied on approximately 80 volunteers making weekly deliveries of shelf-stable meals. With more than 900 seniors relying on meals and groceries provided by NAM and MOW, resuming daily deliveries will require over 220 volunteers each week.
Volunteers are needed at three locations to deliver meals Monday through Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. MOW Locations include NAM’s Main Office, West Side Office and Bear Creek. Individuals, corporations seeking days of service, church and civic groups are all welcome. Meal delivery drivers must be at least 18 years old with a valid driver's license; face masks, gloves and social distancing are required. For questions about volunteer opportunities please email email@example.com. Prospective volunteers can sign up at www.namonline.org/volunteer.
Meals on Wheels delivers hot, well-balanced meals to the doors of seniors and other neighbors who are homebound because of disability or illness. By supporting their nutritional needs and providing a daily check on well-being, the program helps seniors remain healthy and independent for as long as possible.
