“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”
You Can Help By Volunteering
Volunteers’ warm hearts and helping hands are the glue that holds MMOW programs together. Whether delivering meals, assisting at senior centers, working in our resale boutique, or helping with special events and fundraisers, it is our volunteers’ gift of sharing their time and hearts that makes it possible for MMOW to support our participants’ independence with dignity. Along the way, smiles, hugs, and lasting friendships brighten everyone’s path.
Home-delivered meals –MMOW drivers are the friendly faces that bring good cheer and bright smiles as they well as hot lunch meals Monday through Friday. Meals are prepared by local food partners and picked up at that location. It takes about 1½ hours to deliver the meals for one day. Drivers are usually scheduled to deliver meals once a month, or more frequently if they wish.
Senior Center luncheons – MMOW’s luncheons are special events for our seniors and our luncheon volunteers are MMOW ‘s special hostesses. Volunteers assist with activities, games, and food service. Luncheon days and frequency vary from center to center. Volunteers can schedule as time allows.
Sadie’s Upscale Consignment & Resale – If you love fashion and home décor, Sadie’s is the place for you! Volunteers assist in all areas of MMOW’s resale shop Monday through Saturday. Shifts can are flexible to individual availability between 10:00 a.m. and 6 p.m. Volunteers may schedule on a weekly or monthly schedule as time allows.
