North Area Meals on Wheels to hold volunteer drive March 21-25
NORTH SYRACUSE — Each year, Meals on Wheels agencies across the country typically invite “Community Champions” — elected officials and other prominent local figures — to deliver meals as part of the March for Meals campaign. But this year, North Area Meals on Wheels is turning the spotlight onto the real community champions: its volunteers.
“We’re all about our volunteers, and we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without them,” said Jennifer Covert, NAMOW executive director. “We’re looking to add to our crew, and it’s the best crew you could ever imagine.”
Volunteer opportunity: North Area Meals on Wheels
If you are looking to volunteer this Spring, North Area Meals on Wheels hopes you will consider giving them some of your time.
“Since COVID began, we’ve seen a very large influx in clients and you would think that that would have gone down as COVID got better, but it actually stayed up” says the organization’s Executive Director, Jennifer Covert. “We’ve identified and found many areas where people needed meals and they still do. So, this is a great time, a better time than most times to look for more volunteers because with more clients we need more help.”
And so, North Area Meals on Wheels has launched their March for Meals campaign to help recruit new volunteers.
