Changing people's lives, one volunteer at a time.
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with St. Joseph Community Services (SJCS) Meals on Wheels. Our largest need is for volunteer drivers in Manchester and Nashua. We also have some driver openings at our smaller nutrition sites throughout the county. Again, we thank you for your kindness and hope that you and your loved ones stay safe.
It only takes a few hours a week to make an impact on someone's life.
SJCS would not be able to do what we do without the outstanding service and commitment of our volunteers! With nearly 70 routes, SJCS nutrition sites deliver meals to homebound older and disabled adults throughout Hillsborough County, Monday through Friday. Most volunteers offer their services on a weekly basis, morning and early afternoon shifts are available. We have volunteer drivers and volunteers who assist us in the kitchen. Training is provided.
