Last week, the Erie County Legislature passed a resolution in support of Meals on Wheels for WNY.
Legislators Mills, Lorigo, Rath, Hardwick, Morton, Dixon, Loughran, Grant, Miller-Williams, Savage and Burke submitted the resolution, which states that the legislature stands “in unity with Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senator Chuck Schumer, Congressman Chris Collins, Congressman Brian Higgins, and all public officials concerned about the proposed cuts to programs like Meals on Wheels.”
The resolution further recognized Meals on Wheels for its commitment to the community during “fierce winters, bouts of near-paralyzing snow, and cold spells during the colder months, which often keep senior citizens in their homes for months at a time.”
Certified copies of the resolution will be sent to WNY’s delegation to the U.S. Congress.
Thank you to the Erie County Legislature and government officials at all levels for your support of the work that Meals on Wheels does.
