Our intergenerational volunteer initiative that encourages young people to give back to their community.
We team young volunteers with adult drivers to deliver meals to seniors and other MOW West clients. Meals on Wheels West’s Connecting Generations initiative teams up volunteers from local middle schools, SAMOHI,UCLA, Pretenders Dance Studios and our adult volunteers to brighten the day of our clients of all ages. Children, teens and young adults learn the joy of giving and to give back to their communities. Our clients share their wisdom and the joy they feel from a visit by young people. Our friendly volunteers are too often the only visitors our clients see.
People can volunteer once a week, once a month, once a year – whatever works for you and your group. Families, youth groups, schools and individuals join together in Connecting Generations.
