Looking for a way to plug into the community this term and make a difference?
Join PSU's Student Community Engagement Center to volunteer your time on a new term-long service opportunity with Elm Court Meals on Wheels!
Meals on Wheels People seeks to enrich the lives of seniors and assist them in maintaining independence by making available nutritious food, social contact, and other resources. Over 5,000 meals are served daily to homebound seniors and others at 34 meal sites.
Every other week starting at the end of January, help prepare food in the downtown Meals on Wheels kitchen, greet diners as they arrive, participate in activities and anything else that's needed! Please wear long sleeves, pants, closed toes shoes (shirts can be short-sleeved, just no sleeveless shirts).
We will meet at the Student Community Engagement Center and walk or streetcar down to Elm Court Meals on Wheels together.
