About Meals on Wheels in Alexandria
Few things are more essential and more comforting than a nutritious meal. Meals on Wheels is a life-sustaining program that allows seniors who are unable to leave their homes to shop or who have difficulty preparing a meal to have two healthy meals a day delivered to their homes. SSA provides meals 365 days a year in partnership with the City of Alexandria, loyal volunteers and donors.
Would you like to be a Meals on Wheels volunteer and make a difference in a Senior's life? We are always looking for volunteers especially on the weekends. All we ask is that each volunteer commit to two (very satisfying) hours a month - that is just one morning of deliveries! And don't worry, we'll train you. Do you have a club or class that wants to volunteer together? We work with groups as well. To find out more call 703-836-4414, ext 12. or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
