With Currituck senior centers opening back up on Monday, March 22, 2021 the need for volunteers is greater than ever. Covid–19 impacted everyone and everything, the home delivered meals program is no different. With a significant loss in volunteers due to varying reasons and staff returning to more normal daily operations, we are left with a HUGE hole that can be filled by folks in our community.
You can volunteer as little or as much as your want. Don’t want to commit to a certain day and time? No problem – be an alternate and volunteer when it’s the right time for you. The average time it takes to deliver a meal is 1 hour, unless you become attached…then it may take a little longer!
