Meal Delivery to Veterans

Organization

Columbus House

Description

We are in need of some volunteers to make a weekly Tuesday delivery of meals to our Veterans. These Veterans are part of our Supportive Services for Veterans Families (SSVF) and currently in hotels in New London and Middletown. On Tuesdays at 11am, the volunteer would pick up food at our Main Shelter kitchen in New Haven and then deliver the food to the hotel front desk staff. Food is transported in bags/boxes packed by Columbus House kitchen staff. Typically 18-20 medium size bags/boxes total are needed for single transport. Less if the run is split between 2 people. We are seeking 4-8 volunteers to work on a rotating schedule, ensuring that every Tuesday is covered. This is possibly a 4 month long volunteer opportunity. Possibly through the end of this year.

Mission Statement

To serve people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, by providing shelter and housing and by fostering their personal growth and independence.
