Popcorn Poppers
University Medical Center is looking for ‘popcorn poppers.’ You can be an important part of the UMC group of volunteers. Most volunteers work four hours once a week, but UMC will work with your schedule. The best part of volunteering is that you make a difference for so many individuals and families.

Drivers & Helpers
Lubbock Meals on Wheels is looking for volunteer drivers, both regular and substitute to deliver meals. Each route has about 10 to 12 meals that can be delivered in an hour.
Orientation and background checks are required for all delivery volunteers.
If you do not wish to drive, volunteers are also needed for various office duties, kitchen duties, cleaning the meal delivery coolers, building and ground maintenance, and assisting with the pet food program.
One hour of your time can make an incredible difference in the life of someone who is homebound, elderly, or disabled.
