Oishei's Knowledge Management Officer, Curtis Robbins, and his daughter, Claire, spent a morning delivering meals as part of last week's “Champions for Meals” event.
The yearly event gives community members the opportunity to volunteer their time to help promote Meals on Wheels for WNY (MOW).
Joining Curtis and Claire was Kelly Campbell, MOW's Planned & Major Gifts Officer (shown here.)
"A lot of hard work goes into preparing and delivering meals for those in need. It was rewarding to lend a hand and at the same time, show my daughter the importance of helping others," stated Robbins.
Meals on Wheels for Western New York serves meals to more than 3,600 homebound clients each year, helping the frail and ill elderly or disabled enjoy the highest level of independence possible. Last year alone they served more than 900,000 meals to the homebound in Erie County and an additional 250,000 to seniors mobile enough to get to a congregate site.
