Johnson County Meals on Wheels is looking for volunteers who have just one extra hour a month during their lunch break to deliver meals to homebound seniors.
Johnson County Meals on Wheels delivers a hot, nutritious noon meal to these individuals. However we provide more than a meal. We also serve as a daily check on homebound seniors to make sure they are doing well.
There are eight different locations where volunteers can pick up their meals: Blue Valley, De Soto, Gardner, Lenexa, Merriam, Olathe, Overland Park, and Spring Hill. Meals are delivered Monday – Friday between 10:45 a.m. – noon by our dedicated volunteer team.
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, attend an orientation session, and complete an application to get started. Children are welcome to accompany parents or grandparents on their routes. Volunteers may adopt a weekly route, a monthly route or even serve as a substitute and drive when available.
The next orientation sessions are from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 13 and Thursday, Dec. 22 at 11811 S. Sunset Drive, Suite 1300, Olathe, KS 66061. Volunteers are asked to bring their driver’s license and proof of auto insurance and will complete all necessary paperwork at the orientation session.
With as little as one hour a month, you can make a difference in the life of homebound seniors. If you would like to register for an upcoming orientation session, please call Brandy at 913-715-8859.
