Meals On Wheels Delaware holds several events throughout the year, each in a different county in Delaware. Volunteering to help with an event is a great way to get involved. You can choose the role that is the best fit for your interests and the time you have available. Committees are formed to assist the staff, generate new ideas, recruit new restaurants, secure auction donations, create themes, decorate and engage new volunteers. Volunteers are always needed to help set-up and enhance the guest experience at the events.
- Event Committee
The event committee is made up of volunteers that would like to play a crucial role in the planning and execution of the event. Generally, this committee meets 6 to 9 months prior to the event to start planning.
- Auction Committee
This committee works directly with a MOWD employee and works together to put a silent and/or live auction together. Volunteers reach out and recruit unique items that will increase revenue for the organization. They also help setting up and taking down the auction items at the events.
- “Event Day” Support
These volunteers help with pre-event preparation, during the events and with post-event break down. Volunteers are assigned roles to help the attendee’s experience run smoothly. This includes: greeters, registration & check-in, auction check-in/check-out and much more!
