There are many ways you can invest in Community Support Connections – Meals on Wheels and More. From sponsoring our events, volunteering as a group, or lending us your expertise, you can help us make a difference in Waterloo Region.
Is your company 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 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 2016-17, our volunteers delivered 85,983 meals.
How Adopt-A-Route works:
Your company provides one or two employees once per week to deliver meals
You select a specific day of the week and we schedule your employee(s) on that specific day each week
Employees 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 employees 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, employees return their meals bags to the depot and then head back to work
Increased teamwork and spirit amongst employees
Your employees become community ambassadors for your company
Increased community profile for your business through CSC’s website, social media and more
