Volunteer

Without the help of dedicated volunteers, Project NOW could not begin to deliver the many needed services we offer.

Volunteerism preserves a sense of community, brings people of different backgrounds together to achieve common goals, and promotes understanding, relationships and caring.

Please consider one of our volunteer opportunities listed below:

Rock Island County Senior Center

The Rock Island County Senior Center relies on volunteers to help deliver hundreds of meals daily to home-bound seniors. For more information or to volunteer, call (309) 788-6335.

Home-Delivered Meals: Volunteers drive a designated route in the Illinois Quad City area. Routes usually take about an hour to complete. Routes are run during the noon hour.
