Seasonal Cleaning

We understand that the limitations imposed on cooking may, in many cases, also impose upon house cleaning, yard work, shoveling snow or home repairs. Throughout the year we are approached by large groups and some individuals, who are looking to do more than deliver meals. So, we put these volunteers to work! We will take requests from our clients and, in the Spring and Fall, we will send out volunteers to get the job done. Many of these jobs include: painting, window washing, cleaning gutters, etc. Do not hesitate to reach out if you, or someone you know, could benefit from Seasonal Cleaning provided by volunteers at Meals on Wheels of Lancaster.

Social Call Program

The Social Call Program is a volunteer-driven initiative offered through Meals on Wheels of Lancaster. Our mission is to alleviate social isolation by fostering deeper relationships between clients and volunteers through meaningful and uplifting interactions.

Goals:
Improve client quality of life through social interaction
Build meaningful relationships between clients and volunteers
Increase knowledge and access to community resources and services

This program was inspired by a survey through which 32% of our clients reported to us that our volunteers are the only people they see on average day. We believe that food insecurity is a product of social isolation. We want to support our clients as they pursue their lives at home, but we want to do more than deliver food. Our intention is for clients and volunteers to engage in conversation and social activities such as game play, movie/TV watching, book reading/discussion, etc. We hope that, together, we can build meaningful relationships with each other and combat food insecurity. Contact us if you would like to participate in the Social Call Program.
