Thanksgiving and Christmas Meal Delivery
If you have a couple hours of free time on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning, would you consider helping us deliver 500 hot meals to our clients? Meal delivery is important now more than ever, as we’ve seen nutrition needs quadruple for our clients during the pandemic. For anyone living with, or at risk for, HIV/AIDS, Nashville CARES is the premier HIV/AIDS agency in the region. We provide comprehensive education, a broad range of targeted services and effective advocacy, all in a highly personal, confidential and compassionate manner.
Delivery drivers will be picking up routes and hot meals to deliver to 1-4 client homes (all in a similar area). You need to pick up your meals and route information from between 10am-10:45am at FiftyForward. It should take no more than 2 hours to deliver the meals.
This is a great volunteer opportunity for families, friends or anyone looking to give back during the holidays.
A note about COVID: this volunteer role is very well set-up for physical distancing and low-contact volunteering, especially since it mostly takes place outside. Which is great, since we serve clients who are immunocompromised. That being said, we will be:
- requiring mask wearing, both with the distribution and delivery volunteers.
- encouraging hand hygiene practices (we’ll have hand sanitizer available).
- taking temperature checks and asking a brief COVID questionnaire upon arrival.
- sending out extra safety guidelines on how to drop off the food safely: will be provided beforehand via email and as a handout upon food pick-up.

In accordance with Mayor John Cooper’s Roadmap for Reopening Nashville, Hands On Nashville recommends the following guidelines for volunteering:
Individuals belonging to the following groups should not volunteer for in-person opportunities: ages 65 and up, those with elevated health risk or compromised immune systems, anyone who is feeling unwell (or who has been exposed to/is caring for someone who is sick or has a compromised immune system).
Volunteers who attend projects should take recommended precautions, including maintaining distances between themselves and other people; practicing hand-washing and sanitation of spaces; wearing gloves, masks, and other protective gear; etc. As always, consult a medical professional should you begin to feel unwell at any point during or after a project.
If you decide not to attend a project, please log in to hon.org and remove yourself from the opportunity ahead of time so that another volunteer may have a chance to fill your slot. If you have any trouble with this, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to help!
Please be aware that your project may be canceled with short notice. Projects are subject to change depending on shifting guidelines and circumstances. We appreciate your understanding.
