Our volunteers are ages 18-80+ and come from all walks of life. We have opportunities to match your schedule. Call (510) 894-0370, email, or reach out to one of the program volunteer coordinators listed below. You can also sign up online.


We need:

Drivers for Meals on Wheels

Volunteer Coordinator: Tammy

You will be joining a crowd of wonderful people from all over the Tri-Cities who deliver nutritious meals to older adults. Do it twice a month, once a week, or every day. We also need people on our sub list for when others call in. It’s 2-hours (10 am-noon) for as many weekdays as you like. Meals are delivered to older adults in Fremont, Newark, and Union City.

Transportation Program Drivers

Volunteer Coordinator: Andrea M.

Pick up an older adult at their home, take them shopping or to an appointment. Some need visual guidance, a steady arm, or help reaching for groceries. Rides take about 2 hours each. Flexible weekday scheduling.

Friendly Visitors

Volunteer Coordinator: Linda

You are able to see the biographies of older adults and choose the one you think you would like as a friend. Volunteers give 2 hours per week at whatever time suits both people. You will love doing this!
