The lady (on the left) in the picture is very appreciative of the food, but more importantly the friendship and relationships that have been established. She is 101 and a very engaging person who still enjoys giving back. Just spending time with her and listening to her life is an encouragement in itself. You too could be meeting a person like her and have an "adopted grandparent".
Feeling like volunteer commitments take too many hours from your already busy schedule? Consider FAI! For a commitment of 1 - 3 hours a month you could be engaging with some of our "hidden national treasures".
Volunteers take food once a month to low-income and disabled seniors assigned to them. Notices are sent by email about scheduled pickups. Got a friend you could ask to team with you to make deliveries? Or perhaps your family could do this project together?
Volunteer teams (congregations, businesses, organizations) work at the warehouse to help organize and pack food. Assist route delivery volunteers to load food. Good group activity 10 -15 people.
Mission: Food Assistance, Inc. "Groceries on Wheels" totally volunteer-driven, charitable, community outreach offering food, friendship, and hope to low income and disabled seniors in Guilford County, NC.
