Descriptions of Volunteer Areas
Home Delivered Meals Volunteer
We are always in need of regular and substitute volunteer drivers for Meals on Wheels routes located throughout Randolph County. Meals on Wheels are delivered Monday through Friday. It generally takes a hour to deliver a route. Choose which day you would like to deliver! We strive to have all routes completed by around noon each day. If this is something you may be interested in, please contact our Nutrition Director Jessica Cain at 336-625-3389 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our seniors love Bingo and we can always use volunteer callers. Times vary at each of our senior center locations. Sign up to help once in a while or pick a day to help out each week. If you are interested in assisting with calling Bingo, please call 336-625-3389 ext. 228 or e-mail email@example.com.
SaltBox on Salisbury Volunteer
The SaltBox on Salisbury is home to a vast array of home-crafted goods and favorite finds, created by local seniors. Do you enjoy interacting with people? Do you have an appreciation for unique and one-of-a-kind hand-crafted items? If so, you should consider volunteering in the SaltBox. You can work every week or every two weeks--you choose! We need coverage for four hours a day, generally from 10am to 2pm. If you are interested in volunteering in the SaltBox, please call our SaltBox Manager Ginger Flynt at 336-625-3389 ext. 211 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
