April is National Volunteer Month! We’re thankful for each and every one of our 1,700 volunteers who serve our homebound and disabled neighbors year round. The dedication of these individuals, and the support of our 87 Adopt-A-Route organizations, gives us the ability to serve those in need all across Erie County. As a thank you, each volunteer received a small Meals on Wheels gift this month as a token of our appreciation.
Our Volunteer Hall of Fame, holding the photo and name of hundreds of long term volunteers, has been repainted and refreshed. This display is a permanent fixture at the Meals on Wheels main office, standing in constant dedication to the many generous Western New Yorkers who empower this program to aid those in need. On April 26, we will hold a Volunteer Recognition Dinner to honor the volunteers reaching 20, 25, 30, and 35 year milestones with our organization. Their photos will be added to our Hall of Fame as thanks to their decades-long service to the homebound elderly and disabled individuals of our community.
Thank you to all of our amazing delivery volunteers, Adopt-A-Route partners, and front desk volunteers for your ongoing support of our Meals on Wheels program. Happy National Volunteer Day!
