The Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging’s Senior Wellness and Nutrition program needs your help. There is an immediate need for volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels in the Salamanca area.

The Meals on Wheels distribution site is open Monday through Friday, and the need for volunteers is especially great on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Most volunteers deliver 5 to 10 meals once a week. It takes about one hour (10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.) to complete a delivery route.

The Meals on Wheels program supports homebound recipients by helping them preserve their independence, delay or prevent nursing home placement, and improve or maintain their current health status. Without volunteers, the delivery of meals would be impossible.

If you would like to volunteer, or if you have any questions about volunteering, please call Ellen Herner, Retired Senior Volunteer Program Coordinator, at 716-373-8032 or 800-462-2901.
