Meals on Wheels
Cathy Mackay, director of the Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging, announced today that as part of the 2014 March for Meals campaign, the department’s Senior Wellness and Nutrition (SWAN) program hosted Community Champions Day on Wednesday, March 19, at the nutrition sites located throughout Cattaraugus County. Formerly known as Mayors for Meals Day, Community Champions Day is a day when elected officials deliver Meals on Wheels along with the volunteers.
This year the following officials participated:
The Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging’s Senior Wellness and Nutrition (SWAN) program needs your help. During the winter months we have an increased need for people to deliver home meals and at the same time, our program has a smaller pool of volunteers to help.
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.
