Is your business or organization engaged and looking to give back to WNY?
The Meals on Wheels Adopt-A-Route program is the ideal opportunity for WNY agencies, businesses, community groups and friends to ensure seniors live longer and healthier! Your office will join a committed team of volunteers who serve food and friendship to our homebound WNY neighbors.
When 8 - 10 individuals from your office commit to delivering meals once a week, two rotating team members will pair up to drive and serve meals, once a week during their lunch hour (11 am - 12pm.) The team picks up meals and route directions at a Center not far from the office and sets out to visit no more than 12 people
Delivery takes just one hour. Individually, Adopt-A-Route participants volunteer just one 60-minute lunch hour a month.
Our greatest volunteer need is in the city of Buffalo. We hope your office will consider the opportunity and gift of your time, to make the day of our 3,600 homebound neighbors! Please reach out to Lauren Gousy (822-2002 ext. 21) about how your team can share and hour and save a life at lunch!
