Smithtown Needs Volunteer Drivers For Meals On Wheels Program

Volunteer Drivers Needed for Meals on Wheels Program

Do you have a couple of free hours in your week?  Would you like to provide a vital service to senior citizens in your community? The Town of Smithtown Senior Citizens Department has an opportunity for you! 

We are looking for volunteers to deliver meals to the homebound elderly in the Smithtown community. Meals are delivered in the late morning each Monday - Friday and require as little as two hours a week, one to four days per month. You can even choose to be a “back-up” driver if your time is limited. Our volunteers use their own vehicles and are reimbursed for mileage. 

Volunteer with a friend and share the experience! If you have the time to spare, we would love to have you join our wonderful group of volunteers. For more information, call us at 631-360-7616 and ask for Tina.

Funding for this nutrition program is provided by the Suffolk County Office for the Aging, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services through the New York State Office for the Aging, and the Town of Smithtown.

For more information about the Smithtown Senior Citizens Department visit us at 420 Middle Country Road in Smithtown or  HYPERLINK “http://www.smithtownny.gov” www.smithtownny.gov.
