Urgent Need for Meals on Wheels Volunteers in Olean

News from Aging, Posted on Tue, 04/24/2018 - 3:39pm

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 Olean area.

Meals on Wheels are delivered throughout the Olean area 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.
