Delivering Joy Brings Joy

Volunteers are at the very heart of all we do here at the Visiting Nurse
Association (VNA) and we could not do our important work without the
thousands of dedicated individuals who donate their time each year. VNA
Meals on Wheels volunteer Kishore feels strongly about giving back and

A Message From Katherine Krause – Fall Into a Season of Service

October 4th marked our first week back to delivering Meals on Wheels five days a week since the pandemic began in March 2020. In an effort to limit contact and protect clients and volunteers, VNA adjusted our delivery schedule at various points during the past 18 months, while still providing five meals per week to clients. We are excited to resume our “normal” delivery schedule, which enables us to check on the vulnerable clients we serve each weekday while also delivering freshly prepared, hot

As we gear back up, we are in need of more volunteers to deliver. We hope you’ll begin your fall with a spirit of service by signing up to deliver Meals-weekly, monthly and quarterly opportunities are available. It is easy to sign up at!
