Bring a Smile to a Senior: Be a Monthly Meal Volunteer

Today being the first of the month, it is only natural for someone to take stock of what they have coming up on their schedule. May specifically is a month when a person is likely to have a lot of events; with celebrations like Mother’s Day, graduations, and the like marking the calendar. However, imagine what it is like for a needy senior citizen whose financial and health issues make going out difficult. For many impoverished seniors, the days of fun events on the calendar or specials meals are simply no longer a reality. This is the reason Humanitarian Service Project created the “Meal of the Month” program for the impoverished seniors in our Senior Citizen Project. Volunteers for the program cook or purchase a meal for one of the senior’s in our project and deliver it to them, giving the senior a joyful event and nice meal that they, otherwise, would not be able to have.

From the feedback we’ve received from the seniors in our project, the Meal of the Month is certainly a program that they cherish and look forward to. One senior sent a thank you to the volunteer who provided a meal to her saying, “Everything was so delicious! It was truly out of this world. You are a very generous person. Thank you so much for everything!” We are currently looking for more volunteers interested in the program so that meals can be provided for more needy seniors each month. If you are interested in reaching out to senior citizens in need, providing a meal through this program is both a practical and fun way to do so. If you have any questions, please call us at 630-221-8340.
