10 Ways To Make An Impact
Drive for Meals on Wheels
Volunteers are the heart of Meals on Wheels of Tampa. Caring and compassionate individuals deliver hot healthy meals to recipient’s homes five days a week. One of the many benefits of volunteering is helping the growing population of Tampa’s homebound and senior members continue to live independently in their own homes. Volunteers also offer caregivers/family members peace of mind that their loved ones will receive a meal, a friendly conversation and a daily safety check.

The Crisis Center of Tampa Bay helps homebound elderly and adults with disabilities who live alone, have no available support system to assist them, or who are TTD/TTY or Florida Relay dependent. Referrals for someone to receive calls can be made by individuals, organizations, businesses, community agencies, home health agencies, hospital discharge planners, aging services, law enforcement, the faith community, postal service, friends, and relatives. Caring, concerned people 18 years of age or older are eligible to volunteer. New volunteers must complete an application & personal interview, and participate in a training program. The Telephone Reassurance Program provides an opportunity for daily interaction by linking seniors with a friendly, caring person.
