The Cattaraugus County Department of the Aging’s Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) is seeking volunteers for Meals on Wheels deliveries, especially in Olean, Salamanca and Cattaraugus/Little Valley.

In a press release dated Wednesday, the Department of the Aging noted that the COVID-19 pandemic has led to a shortage of volunteers to deliver nutritious meals to frail, elderly or disabled homebound senior citizens, who need to remain safe and secure at home. 

The mileage reimbursement is .45/mile to any Meals on Wheels volunteer, regardless of age, and is not tax-deductible.
