Potential volunteers must also undergo a background check, and provide proof of insurance and a valid driver’s license.

Volunteers drive to the YMOW offices at 1110 W. Cross St., Ypsilanti, to pick up 8-10 meals stored in an easy-to-carry thermal container. You will be provided with a designated route including detailed driving and delivery instructions for each client. Once you complete your visits, return your supplies to the YMOW office.

Meals are delivered between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, including holidays.

As often as you would like. You can choose one day a week, one day a month, or you can ask to be called as needed.

While finding volunteers to fill delivery routes is our biggest need, there are other ways to get involved, including:

  • Support our office staff by answering phones, filing and more.
  • Help us gain financial support by writing and researching grants.
  • Take photos or video at one of our fundraising events.
  • Volunteer to help make our fundraisers successful.
  • Create and write greeting cards for the seniors. (This is a great youth project.)
  • Join a committee. (Fundraising, Finance or Communication & Marketing)
  • Serve on our Board of Directors.

Please call (734) 487-9669 or email Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer Raspbury at jennifer@ymow.org to let us know how you would like to help.
