There are many ways you can invest in Community Support Connections – Meals on Wheels and More. From sponsoring our client events, fundraising events, volunteering as a group, or lending us your expertise, you can help us make a difference in Waterloo Region.
Is your company or group seeking a unique and rewarding opportunity?
Every weekday our dedicated volunteers deliver hot, nutritious meals to hundreds of seniors and adults with a disability in our community. Your business or group can Adopt-A-Route to share the responsibility once a week while receiving the opportunity to give back to some of our area’s residents. In 2017-18, our volunteers delivered 84,277 meals.
How Adopt-A-Route works:
Your company or group provides one or two employees once per week to deliver meals
You select a specific day of the week and we schedule your members on that specific day each week
Members meet at one of our conveniently located meal delivery depots closest to your workplace between 10:30am and 11:30am to pick up the meals
Your members are assigned a route, which typically consists of 7-12 client homes
Meal delivery typically takes between 60 and 90 minutes
At the end of the meal route, members return their meals bags to the depot and then head back to work
Increased teamwork and spirit
Your group becomes community ambassadors
Increased community profile through CSC’s website, social media and more
