Bring a smile to a senior- deliver a meal!! Have you ever thought about volunteering? If you have, 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 deliver the meals in your car in the 78207 Westside neighborhood. 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 will give you the course, including address, names, and phone numbers, so you can call when you arrive home.
Delivery is excellent in pairs; one person can drive and navigate, and the other can call the seniors upon arrival and hand-deliver the meal. Delivery can do it with one person, but it will take a little longer.
Only one person must register if you are a pair, 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 can access the application and handbook online. If you want to fill out a paper version, please email Susan.Barnes@HNS-TX.org with any other questions. Her cell is 512-917-2778
