We want to thank all the wonderful people who would like to help.

However, at this time, we are no longer accepting applications from volunteer applicants due to Covid 19.

Thank you for thinking of us and please stay safe.

To Our Community and Friends:

We have been brainstorming about ideas on how to have people help our clients. Our office has been inundated with wonderful offers of help.
In an effort to utilize these volunteers in the very best way- we have developed an “Adopt a Senior” program- the basic idea is that our home delivered meal clients would be paired with an outside volunteer who would agree to check on that client by phone- and see what that client may need on a  personal level. This may be food delivery to the porch- toilet paper drop off- picking up items at the store etc.

The client and the volunteer would both agree to this and understand they both respect the social distancing requirements and CDC recommendations.

After this event is over we hope that these community volunteers will continue the relationship with the client.

Many of our clients are very ill and have no family support- Charleston has the most giving people anywhere- and they have risen to this challenge like any other.

We have only just developed this plan- so those that wish to be part of it should contact our office via email and watch our Facebook for more info. We are currently getting client permissions to get this rolling.

Monetary donations and food donations are always welcome- as our food pantry will be seeing many more needy families in the weeks to come.

Please let me know if you have any other questions,

Donna Cook

Important CASC Updates re: Corona Virus Actions

  • The Senior Center is closed to the public indefinitely due to COVID 19. We will rely on the City of Charleston and the CDC  guidelines to determine when it is safe to re-open the facility to the public.
  • Our emergency food pantry is still open Tuesday and Wednesday 1-3:30pm.  We are in need of food donations to replenish our pantry since the need will be growing as people are out of work.
  • Meals on Wheels is running as normal.  Donations to purchase extra meals are appreciated.
  • We have limited volunteers to those that are already in place at this time to protect our staff who are all over 60.

Meals on Wheels Charleston

DELIVERING SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST A MEAL.

See MOW on FB

We are guided by a single goal – to support our senior neighbors to extend their independence and health as they age.

That goal also extends to the dozens of volunteers who work with us. From the kind people who deliver the meals and meet with our clients, to the dedicated cooks in our kitchen—we are all one caring community.

Meals on Wheels of Charleston is a community-based program designed specifically to meet the nutritional and social needs of seniors.
