Volunteer Drive

Albemarle Commission’s Senior Nutrition Program is seeking Meals on Wheels volunteers for routes in Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell and Washington counties in North Carolina. There is an urgent need for volunteers in Chowan and Pasquotank counties, who have a waiting list for potential clients due to lack of volunteers. Routes start at 11 am, Monday through Friday. Each route takes about an hour to complete. Volunteering as little as one day a month makes a huge impact for our home bound seniors. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Laura Rollinson, Volunteer Coordinator, at (252)-404-7091 or lrollinson@accog.org.
