Benjamins House Meal Volunteers
We are welcoming Meal Volunteers into the shelter as they feel comfortable. Please indicate whether you will be dropping a meal off or coming in to serve a meal.
We ask that those dropping off a meal consider using disposable containers, call ahead to pick up pans, crockpots, or roasters. If using your own and you need them returned, please label them with your name so we can be sure to set them aside for you.
When serving a meal we would like to remind volunteers that even though not all residents may be in attendance at mealtime, they do still benefit from the volunteer meals provided. Residents may not be in attendance for a variety of reasons.
- Conflicting work schedule
- The anxiety of being in new surroundings
- AA meetings/ NA meetings
- Visitation with children
- Medical issues
We ask that you have patience and understanding if you don't see all of our residents at mealtime. Rest assured that they are always very appreciative of the work our meal volunteers put in to help make their lives a bit easier.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call 715-736-2437 or by email at [email protected] Thank you for all you do to help the most vulnerable in our community
