Meals on Wheels Volunteers Needed in Gowanda

News from Aging, Posted on Tue, 04/04/2017 - 12:17pm

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 Gowanda area.

The Gowanda Senior Wellness and Nutrition site is located at Academy Place, 1 School Street in Gowanda. Meals on Wheels are delivered out of this location 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.
