CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. – Deputy Supervisor Tim Meyers took part in Meals on Wheels of Western New York’s annual “Champion for Meals” event.
This year’s event ran from Monday, March 20 through March 24 provided government officials and local celebrities an opportunity to share in the meal delivery experience by volunteering their time and giving back to members of the community.
“I would like to thank Supervisor Diane Benczkowski for giving me the opportunity to participate in this year’s event. This was a wonderful experience for me, as I was able to see first-hand the wonderful job and dedication of our many Town residents who volunteer of their time to help those in need”, said Meyers.
This year was especially important as the program faces the potential cuts from the federal government.
Deputy Supervisor Meyers joined Cheektowaga’s Director of Senior Services Kerry Peek, Senior Center sitemanager Ruth Diebold, and more than a dozen volunteers at the Cheektowaga Senior Center on Broadway to deliver meals to those homebound seniors and disabled individuals living in South Cheektowaga.
Meals on Wheels of Western New York currently operates out of three locations in Cheektowaga. The three locations serve a hot and cold meal Monday through Friday, both during the lunch hour, to nearly 400 individuals in Cheektowaga with the help of dozens of volunteers.
Meals on Wheels of Western New York is also looking for volunteers for all three Cheektowaga locations. To find out more information on how to volunteer, please call the Cheektowaga Senior Center at (716) 686-3930 or visit their website at mealsonwheelswny.org.
