Meals on Wheels for Western New York welcomed more than 80 students and parents from Elmwood Franklin School today, celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day with an afternoon of volunteering. After a short presentation in the school’s theater, six buses of volunteers braved the cold and delivered meals from our Black Rock site.
The day of volunteering helped bring both meals and smiles to more than sixty of our homebound elderly and disabled neighbors. The event wrapped up with a pizza social held by the school.
Thank you to the amazing students, parents, and school staff who helped make today happen!
