Meals on Wheels Volunteers Needed in Olean

News from Aging, Posted on Thu, 02/15/2018 - 6:56pm

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 Olean area.

The Olean Senior Wellness and Nutrition site is located in the John Ash Community Center, 112 North Barry Street in Olean. Meals on Wheels are delivered out of this location Monday through Friday. Most volunteers deliver 10-16 meals once a week and it takes about one hour 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 (RSVP) Director, at 716-373-8032 or 800-462-2901.
