Meals on Wheels Volunteers needed for Franklinville and Gowanda Area
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 Franklinville and Gowanda areas.
Meal on Wheels Distribution sites in Franklinville and Gowanda:
- The Franklinville Senior Wellness and Nutrition site is located at 25 South Main Street, Franklinville (in the First Presbyterian Church).
- The Gowanda Senior Wellness and Nutrition site is located at Academy Place, 1 School Street in Gowanda.
Meals on Wheels are delivered out of these locations Monday through Friday. Most volunteers deliver 7 to 12 meals once a week and it takes about one hour (11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.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.
