Our volunteers are a diverse group of individuals. They are business owners, retirees, students, professionals and stay-at-home moms. The one thing that they all have in common is a dedication to serving the ill, disabled, and senior residents of East Texas. All it takes is an hour to change the life of a senior or disabled person in need! The process is simple:
- Fill out the volunteer application here
- Email, mail, or drop the application off at our Meals on Wheels Ministry office at 3001 Robertson Rd. Tyler, TX 75701
- Or you may call and make an appointment: (903) 593-7385
- Choose a day that fits your schedule
- Come in as often as you can
Some of our volunteers are here every day, whereas others come once a week or even once a month.
Home Meal Deliveries
Most routes include between 10-12 stops and are designed to take about an hour. Just stop by Meals on Wheels, pick up your meals, and you are on your way to a truly life-changing experience.
From time to time we will need help with basic office duties such as filing, data entry, paperwork, and other tasks that make a huge difference and offer eager volunteers an opportunity that does not require driving.
Projects & Events
Meals On Wheels East Texas has special events throughout the year that raise funds for our home-delivered meals. We are looking for help setting up and/or managing small events, support social media efforts, and help requesting in-kind and monetary donations.
