Share an hour, save a life with Meals on Wheels
Saturday March 1, 2014 | By:Press Release |
HAMBURG — Sixty minutes. In the amount of time it may take a person to read the morning newspaper, take a break at lunch or drive home during rush hour, he or she can make an impact on the life of a homebound elderly or disabled individual right here in the community.
Meals on Wheels for Western New York delivers nearly 900,000 meals a year within Erie County, a feat that would not be possible without volunteers, and that is where area residents can help.
Meals on Wheels has expressed a need for more volunteers to meet the growing demand for service, including here in the local community. Volunteering takes 60 minutes midday for as many days per week or month as a person wants to deliver meals. If meal delivery will not work, Meals on Wheels also needs office volunteers at its South Buffalo location.
Not only does volunteering fill a need in the community, it can help individuals earn required credit for a religious confirmation or school requirement, build a professional network and meet new people.
