News from Aging
The Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging’s Senior Wellness and Nutrition program is currently in need of Meals on Wheels volunteers in the Salamanca area. The meals are picked up by volunteers at Cattaraugus Community Action, located at 25 Jefferson Street. Most volunteers deliver 7 to 12 meals once per week. It takes about one hour (10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.) to complete a route. Mileage reimbursement is available for volunteers age 55 and over.
If you have ever thought about donating your time to a worthy cause- here is your chance! Delivering Meals on Wheels is a great way to serve your community. This would be an excellent opportunity for area businesses or organizations to serve their community as well!
Tonight (June 16, 2011) is the night that the Department of the Aging is trying to raise $1830.00 towards a new van and with your help we can do it!
Come to the Ponderosa Steakhouse in Olean from 4 PM to 8 PM. 15% of the sales will be donated towards our goal!
You may even get the chance to have one of your county legislators or the Mayor of Olean to be your server. Door Prizes every 30 minutes!!
WE NEED YOU!! THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE MEALS ON WHEELS PROGRAM.

The Meals on Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) is asking everyone to Take the Pledge Against Senior Hunger.
This is not a financial pledge. Only a signature is needed to show your support! Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging's Senior Wellness & Nutrition Program is asking that everyone take the time to stop by the Dept of Aging office & sign the Pledge Table Runner. Pledge Table Runners are also available to sign at any of our 13 Nutrition Sites throughout the county.
