For the past two years our family has volunteered with Longmont Meals on Wheels. We are so thankful to be able to serve others and help a great organization such as this one. Longmont Meals on Wheels is a great organization that takes care of their participants and their volunteers. With flexibility and limited time commitment this is the perfect way to give back to the community, even if you already have a busy schedule.
The time commitment necessary is usually less than two hours before lunch, and you can find a day that works best for you. We take healthy, well-balanced, already prepared meals to those that are housebound or recently home from hospitals or nursing homes. Frequently, we are the only contact many of these seniors and participants receive in a day. This important contact has impacted many, by simply preventing the feelings of isolation and anxiety that many who are housebound experience. I can assure you, that by volunteering my family and I have built many relationships and friendships that will last a lifetime. Our entire family is thankful that we got involved over 2 years ago.
However, Longmont Meals on Wheels is in need of more drivers and substitutes drivers. I urge you to take this opportunity, and be a part of something amazing. Please contact Colleen Larsen with Longmont Meals on Wheels (303)772-0540. I personally look forward to seeing you in the future at Longmont Meals on Wheels.
