Volunteer Drivers Needed for Meals on Wheels

The Town of Smithtown Senior Citizens Department is in need of Volunteer Drivers for its Meals on Wheels Programs. Drivers deliver hot meals to the homebound in Smithtown Township. Mileage reimbursement is available.

Due in part to the season, we are experiencing a steep reduction in the availability of our dear volunteer drivers. Our Home Delivered Meal Program relies heavily on our volunteer drivers and their ability to deliver a hot meal to each of our clients.

The Nutrition Program currently serves 130 homebound seniors throughout the community. Without our volunteers’ help and generosity of time, these seniors may not receive a meal and will endure continued social isolation.

Volunteers may give an hour or two of their time to help us deliver these meals. Options for daily, weekly and substitute drivers are available to any who choose to help.

If you have any questions, concerns or require more information, please do not hesitate to contact the Senior Citizens Department at 631-360-7616. Thank you for your assistance.
