The Ward Circle-Georgetown Meals on Wheels needs volunteers to deliver pre-packaged meals, a service that helps people to stay in their homes, despite frailty or disability.
The volunteer effort involves about two hours on weekday mornings. Two volunteers (a driver and a visitor) for each route pick up the meals at National Presbyterian Church on Nebraska Ave. and deliver them to about five to 10 homes. We deliver in neighborhoods around MacArthur Boulevard, Georgetown, American University Park, Spring Valley, Upper NW Connecticut Avenue and Upper NW Wisconsin Avenue.
We need volunteers one day a week or more - as regular drivers or as visitors. If you can serve occasionally as a substitute, we need your help also.
Driver-visitor teams leave from National Presbyterian Church on Nebraska Avenue at 10-10:30 a.m. each weekday, and return no later than noon.
For more information please call us between 9 a.m. and noon at 202-966-8111 or drop in at the office at National Presbyterian Church at 4101 Nebraska Ave. NW (the small building with a parking lot, closest to Van Ness Street) during the same hours.
