Metro Meals on Wheels

The Challenge:

Metro Meals on Wheels wanted to reposition itself as an organization that welcomes families as vital, young successors to its aging volunteer pool.

DGT’s Solution:

  • Redesigned the volunteer program to appeal to families.

  • Built capacity to recruit and engage family volunteers.

  • Developed and promoted creative family volunteer opportunities.

  • Produced a parent handbook.

  • Enriched the experience with age-appropriate reflection materials.

I heard over and over again from individuals that they would love to volunteer but wanted to volunteer with their children.
