Bring a smile to a senior- deliver a meal!! Have you ever thought about volunteering? If you have, then we have the opportunity for you! House of Neighborly Service is a non-profit organization that provides meals to seniors in need. Our mission is to bring a smile to a senior's face by delivering them a meal they can enjoy.
You will be delivering the meals in your own car in the 78207 neighborhood, the near west side. The cooler you will receive with the meals is 42 inches long, 19 inches wide, and 20 inches deep (Igloo 150-Qt. Maxcold Performance Cooler). It fits most SUVs and 4 door cars in the back seat or trunk.
You arrive to pick up the meals at 10:30 am (2802 W. Salinas, 78207) and can complete the route within 1-2 hours, then return the cooler. We give you the route including address, names, and phone numbers so you can call when you arrive at the home.
This is great to do in pairs so one person can drive and navigate, and the other can call the seniors upon arrival and hand-deliver the meal. It can be done with one person, but it will take a little longer.
If you are a pair, only one person needs to register, but we ask both to complete the volunteer application. Only the driver needs to upload a driver’s license. Please notify Susan.Barnes@HNS-TX.org if you will be attending with another person.
All volunteers must wear a mask at our site and while delivering.
Please complete this volunteer application before you register. You only need to complete it once. When you register on Givepulse, you will be able to access the application and handbook online. If you would like to fill out a paper version, please email Susan.Barnes@HNS-TX.org with any other questions you may have. Her cell is 512-917-2778
