Volunteer

We need volunteers to help us make a difference in our client’s lives.

Volunteering with CommUnify brings you the rewards that only helping those in need provides.

CommUnify’s Healthy Senior Lunch Program provided over 150,000 meals throughout the county last year and the demand for our services continues to skyrocket. Our program serves lunch Monday through Friday to any senior resident over the age of 60 at 13 community dining centers and delivers meals to home-bound seniors. Supporting seniors with fresh, healthy meals helps them maintain a healthy immune system and continue to live independently in their own homes.

Our Senior Volunteer program is always looking for additional support. We have several opportunities and ways to volunteer:

Community Dining Center Host

  • Volunteers help serve meals to seniors and complete simple paperwork to document our services. 
  • Volunteers must complete onboarding process, pass background check, get a Live Scan and be 18 years of age or older. 
  • Minimum six-month commitment of two days per week or more.

Meal Delivery Drivers

  • Driving a route delivering lunches to home-bound seniors.
  • Meal delivery begins at approximately 10:30 AM and takes approximately 1 ½ to 2 hours to complete, with 8 - 10 clients on each route.
  • Volunteers must complete onboarding process, pass background check, get a Live Scan, have a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance and be 18 years of age or older. 
  • Minimum six-month commitment of two days per week or more.

On-Call Substitute Meal Delivery Drivers

  • We are also in need of on-call substitute drivers to fill-in when other drivers are out sick, on vacation, or have a conflict.
  • Volunteers must complete onboarding process, pass background check, get a Live Scan, have a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance and be 18 years of age or older. 

Senior Friendship Calls

  • Make weekly calls to seniors to reduce feelings of isolation.
