2021 Thanksgiving Day Meal Packing & Delivery
The Salvation Army Older Alaskans Program

We're sorry, but this opportunity is in the past and online registration is closed for this opportunity. You may select a different opportunity, or you may contact the volunteer coordinator to see if any other opportunities are available in your area.

For over 40 years, The Salvation Army has delivered Thanksgiving meals to homebound seniors and disabled adults.

COVID-19 has impacted everyone, and the elderly and housebound adults in our community have been impacted more than most as they experience even more isolation than usual. The special touch of a fresh holiday meal and a warm greeting from our volunteers will be extra special this Thanksgiving!

COVID-19 Measures:

To ensure the meals can be delivered safely for our volunteers and clients, we have implemented a number of changes as follow

* Masks and social distancing for ALL volunteers (will be provided)

*We will be following Municipality & CDC Guidelines

We need volunteers for:

  • Pack Meals

  • Help load & unload food boxesinto & from vehicles when they return.

  • Make deliveries- drivers must have their own vehicle AND at least one passenger to accompany you on deliveries. (We cannot match drivers with passengers- thanks for understanding!).

Notes for delivery shifts:

We are planning for 40 Delivery Routes. 10-15 delivers per meal route (1-2 food coolers)

NOTE: Drivers - please only reserve ONE SPOT PER VEHICLE.

Thank you for sharing your Thanksgiving morning with us! We cannot do this without you and we appreciate your generosity of time.
