Meals on Wheels Volunteers Needed in Olean

News from Aging, Posted on Fri, 06/13/2014 - 2:03pm

The Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging’s Senior Wellness and Nutrition program needs your help. We are currently looking for Meals on Wheels volunteers to deliver meals in the city of Olean. The Olean nutrition site is open Monday through Friday. Most volunteers deliver approximately 12 meals once a week, and it takes an hour or less to complete a route. Mileage reimbursement is available to volunteers age 55 and over.  

The purpose of the Senior Wellness and Nutrition program and Meals on Wheels is to maintain independence, delay or prevent nursing home placement, and improve or maintain the current health status of the homebound meal recipients. Without volunteers, delivery of the meals would be impossible. 

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please call David Rodkey, Retired Senior Volunteer Program coordinator, at 716-373-8032 or 800-462-2901.
