Volunteer Opportunities
Get Involved
There are a number of ways that you can help give back to those who helped build our great part of the State.  Our Seniors have worked their entire lives to give the rest of us a better way of life; if you would like to show your appreciation, sign up to help promote or carry on a number of our programs. The RCCOA has volunteer opportunities for everyone; whether you are looking for a short or long term commitment.  

Meals on Wheels Delivery
There's nothing more rewarding than bringing a smile to someone else's face.  When you sign up to deliver Meals On Wheels, you'll brighten the day for a number of our Seniors.  Often times, Meals On Wheels recipients look forward more to visiting with the deliverers than receiving their meal.  By giving less than one hour a day, you can make a real difference to those who receive this service.

You or your organization can sign up to volunteer for a week or a month; whatever suits your schedule.  Volunteers are asked to come to the Meals on Wheels entrance at Sidney Health Center (side door entrance to the kitchen; located near the Emergency Room) at 10:45am on the day they deliver.  You will be given a route sheet with the list of names, addresses, and important information of your meal recipients.  You will then be given coolers full of hot food to be delivered to those on your list.   A typical route consists of 7 to 12 people and takes anywhere from a half an hour to an hour to complete.

View our calendar to see what dates are available for volunteering.  You can add your name to any open dates by emailing our office or calling (406) 433-3701.  Thank you for considering making a difference by volunteering for our elderly!

Commodities Packing/Distribution
Can you spare a few hours every 2 months to help feed nearly 80 Seniors in our area?  If so, you may want to consider volunteering with our Commodity Supplemental Food Program.  We are always in need of volunteers for the following:
  • Unloading the truck (once every other month)
Time Committment: About an hour
  • Packaging Commodities (once every other month)
  Time Committment: About 2 hours
  • Distributing Commodities: (once every other month)
  Time Committment: About 4 hours
  • Delivering Commodities: (once every other month)
  Time Committment: About 4 hours

Harvest for Seniors grower/deliverer
We are all very excited about "Harvest for Seniors".  To help ensure the first year is a success we are asking local gardeners to consider the program as they are planting this spring.  An extra packet of seeds will go a LONG way in helping our Seniors get the proper nutrition they need.

Once you have harvested your fruits and vegetables, simply drop your surplus off at the Community Services Building (1201 W Holly, Sidney) between the weekday hours of 8am and 4pm.  We will have a table and bins set up in the entry so that we require as little of your time as possible.  Once the fruits and vegetables are here at our building we will take care of the rest.  

Volunteers from the RSVP program will divide the produce into packages for our Seniors and they will be delivered no later than the next business day.  If you would like to help with the program but do not garden, we would gladly accept help packaging and delivering.  Thanks in advance to everyone who is and will help us "Harvest for Seniors"!
