August 20, 2018

Join Vivienne O’Neill, Director of Volunteer Program, at Citymeals on Wheels, as she talks about their work in Harlem, celebrating National Senior Citizens Day on August 21st, 2018, and more, with host Danny Tisdale, on The Danny Tisdale Show.

Vivienne O’Neill, Director of Volunteer Program, at Citymeals on Wheels, is a non-profit that raises private funds to ensure no homebound elderly from Harlem to Hollis Queens. Since 2005, she vastly expanded the volunteer program – helping to launch our Friendly Visiting program, which brings volunteers into the homes of our meal recipients for weekly in-person visits. She helped to develop Citymeals’ corporate volunteer program and expanded their handmade card program. She also oversees their Senior Chat and Senior Script programs through which volunteers call and write letters to seniors, all while coordinating meal deliveries by volunteers of all ages. When Hurricane Sandy struck in 2012, she organized more than 860 volunteers who braved the storm’s aftermath to deliver 64,595 emergency meals to seniors stranded in their homes. With the senior population in New York City expected to increase 40% by 2040, she ensures Citymeals is responding to the growing need. She spearheads key aging initiatives, including training volunteers to identify signs of Alzheimer’s and elder abuse among meal recipients. In 2017, Vivienne received a Front Line Hero award from New York Nonprofit Media.
