Mission: To deliver nutritious meals to elderly or infirm individuals in the Charlotte community who are unable to obtain or prepare their own meals while also providing human connection to the isolated and loney and peace of mind to their families.
Volunteer to be a delivery driver for Friendship Trays and brighten someone’s day. See firsthand what kind of a difference you make in someone’s life through food and friendship. Volunteers arrive at our Distribution Street location to pick up the meals for their route, utilizing their own vehicle. Meal pickup occurs between 9:45am and 12:00pm. Volunteers can have regular routes with the same recipients or can be a substitue driver, willing to driver wherever is needed. Contact Martha Cochrane to learn more about becoming a driver at MCochrane@friendshiptrays.org
Assist our chefs and cooks in the kitchen with the preparation and packaging of the meals that feed our recipients. We require 12-15 volunteers every day, Monday through Friday, from 8:00am to 11:00am. We serve regular and special diets, so care must be taken to see that the diet meals are served accurately. This is a great group volunteer activity. Contact Lani Lawrence to learn more about helping in our commercial kitchen at LLawrence@friendshiptrays.org
NC MedAssist is a charitable free pharmacy program that provides access to both prescription and over-the-counter medication to over 15,500 patients across North Carolina. NC MedAssist is currently looking for weekday volunteers to help unpack, sort, inventory, and repack our over-the-counter medicines to be distributed to the North Carolina’s most vulnerable. This task may require some heavy lifting and volunteers must wear closed toe shoes. Group and individual volunteer opportunities are available Tuesday through Thursday from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
In addition, NC MedAssist seeks volunteers to participate in scheduled Mobile Free Pharmacy events. Volunteers serve as shoppers, patient engagement, crowd-control, and much more. The event schedule is posted on the volunteer link as well.
