Volunteer

We could not fulfill our mission without the endless commitment of individual and corporate volunteers who give their time and talents to serve our community.

Join us as we bring hope to our community.

Become a Volunteer

Join us in serving hope to our community.

 

All volunteers must attend orientation prior to serving. Orientation is held every Thursday at 9:30 am at Meals on Wheels and lasts about an hour. If you need to schedule another time for orientation, please email let us know and we would be happy to meet with you on another day.

Meals on Wheels of Greenville depends on generous community members and corporate partners to package and deliver meals each day. The individual connection that each volunteer has is as nourishing to our clients as the food provided. Whether you give your time once a week, once a month or once a year, your support is invaluable to fulfilling the Meals on Wheels mission and impacting the lives of thousands each day.

If you are interested in any of these volunteer opportunities or have any questions, please call us at 864.233.6565 or email volunteer@mowgvl.org to get started!

Meal Delivery

We need volunteers to pick up and deliver meals to homebound neighbors throughout Greenville County. Volunteers pick up meals Monday through Friday between 10:00 am and 12:00 pm at our office or at one of our drop-off locations in Piedmont, Fountain Inn, Simpsonville, Travelers Rest and Taylors. Meals can also be delivered to companies who are Corporate Route Partners. Depending on the your route, delivery takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours.

If you're ever unable to deliver as scheduled, we encourage you to find a substitute. Please call us to find a sub for you only if your other attempts fail. Thank you for your help!


Meal Packaging

Come volunteer on our meal packaging line! We need volunteers to pack close to 1,500 meals every Monday through Friday from 9:00 am until approximately 10:30 am. The food is prepared by our kitchen staff and set-up in an assembly line for packaging. This is a great team-building opportunity for companies and organizations!

Greeting

Volunteers are needed Monday through Friday from 9:30 am until 11:30 am to greet in-coming volunteers, hand out route sheets and answer questions.

Pet Food

We need volunteers to package our pet food for the monthly distribution and organize pet food drives. 

Special Events

Volunteers are needed to support our signature events by serving on a committee, securing auction items or helping day-of events. We also recruit volunteers for other community events that select Meals on Wheels as the beneficiary.
