Urgent Need for Meals on Wheels Volunteers in Salamanca

News from Aging, Posted on Fri, 02/23/2018 - 1:31pm

The Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging's Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) needs your help. There is an immediate need for volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels in the Salamanca area.

The Meals on Wheels distribution site in Salamanca is open Monday through Friday. Most volunteers deliver approximately 10 to 16 meals once a week. 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, RSVP Director, at 716-373-8032 or 800-462-2901.
