The Lubbock community works together to insure the continued success of Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ mission. Your time and talents are needed and appreciated.
Volunteer drivers, both regular and substitute, are needed each weekday to deliver meals. You do not need to commit to a set schedule to volunteer for LMOW. Some drivers prefer to take the same route on the same day each week, whereas others prefer to just substitute when needed. For many of our recipients, the LMOW volunteer may be the only person they see during the day. That daily human contact is just as important as the nutritious meal they are receiving. Each route takes approximately 1 hour to deliver. Most routes deliver to 12 – 14 people. A background check and one hour orientation is required for all delivery volunteers.
If you would like to try us out first, we can pair you up with one of our volunteers for a ‘ride-along’. Just give us a call at the number below to let us know.
Volunteer opportunities are available from 10:30 am – Noon, Monday – Friday. Non-delivery volunteer opportunities are available throughout the day Monday through Friday.
If you would like to volunteer, give us a call at 806-792-7971, or
you may fill out our Volunteer Application Form online.
Other Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers are also needed for various administrative and kitchen duties, washing coolers, building and ground maintenance, and assisting with the Pet Program.
Groups and individuals are always needed to help with special projects, activities, and fundraising events.
Corporate Volunteer Program
Currently, over 30 local businesses participate in our Corporate Volunteer Program. These companies allow their employees to deliver meals during their lunch hour. This allows employers to be civic minded without excessive loss of staff time. For convenience, the required orientation may be held at your place of business. If you would like more information about this program, please contact our office at 806-792-7971.
Our Corporate Delivery Volunteers are AWESOME!
Our corporate and group volunteers help us make sure that we can deliver over 770 meals a day! We currently have 32-corporate volunteers. These are companies that commit to deliver routes on a regular basis and allow their employees the time away from work to make a difference in our community. We also have nine group volunteers and three summertime groups. To learn more, please call our office (806)792-7971 or visit our website lubbockmealsonwheels.org.
