- If you’re available on weekdays between 10:30-12:30, LIFE ElderCare needs volunteers to deliver Meals On Wheels to elders in Fremont, Union City, and Newark. Help out as often as you can - 1x / week, once every two weeks, once a month, etc.
Or, sign up to become a friendly visitor and make weekly calls to an isolated senior who needs support. This is a flexible opportunity that can easily fit into your schedule - and is a great way to volunteer while still sheltering-in-place.
Please call 510-894-0370, email info@LifeElderCare.org, or sign up at www.LifeElderCare.org.

To ensure adequate staff for health care sites throughout California, we’re calling on healthcare providers, behavioral health professionals, and health care administrators to register today.
