Sorters should be able to read and follow simple directions. Sorters cannot wear shorts or open toe shoes. It is helpful, but not necessary, if sorters could lift approximately 35 pound boxes.

Please call 586-469-6004 to schedule a time to volunteer.
Meals on Wheels - Volunteers Needed
Many people know Meals on Wheels as a food delivery service for the homebound. However, what they don't know is how impactful the moments of contact between the volunteer and the recipient can be. For many seniors, the volunteer who drops off their meal is the only person they will see that day. The delivery isn't just about nourishment, it's about a valuable moment of human connection. In turn, it's those moments of human connection that make volunteering so rewarding.
Volunteers are needed throughout Macomb County. If you're interested in volunteering, please call (586) 469-5228 or sign-up using the online form.
