Immediate Need for Volunteers

News from Aging, Posted on Wed, 03/13/2019 - 11:20am

The Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging's Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) needs your help. We are currently looking for volunteers for the Cattaraugus/Little Valley Senior Wellness and Nutrition site, located at 17 South St. in Cattaraugus.

We are in need of nutrition site and Meals on Wheels volunteers. A nutrition site volunteer helps with cleaning tables, washing dishes, and packing Meals on Wheels.

Meals on Wheels are delivered in the Cattaraugus area Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday. Most volunteers deliver 10-16 meals once a week, and it takes about one hour to complete a 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.
