When you are a GECAC Meals on Wheels volunteer, you are delivering much more than a hot meal - you are providing a human connection. A typical volunteer route takes about one hour to complete. This one hour affects the lives of so many of our neighbors in need throughout Erie County. For many of our homebound neighbors, you will be the only person they will see or speak with all day. This special delivery gives them a reason to get up in the morning, something to look forward to, and a reminder to take care of themselves.
Together, We Can Deliver.
