Amherst Meals on Wheels Receives Helping Hand from Citigroup | Community Spirit
Amherst Meals on Wheels (AMOW), which delivers over 70,000 meals annually to homebound, elderly and handicapped Amherst residents each weekday – recently was helped by over 20 volunteers from Citigroup. Over 200 local Citigroup employees volunteered their time on a recent Friday in honor of CitiGroup’s 200th Anniversary.
AMOW provides two nutritious meals a day, delivered directly to the recipient’s home, plus the reassurance of a volunteer’s friendly visit. Meals are prepared and packaged fresh each day at the Amherst Center for Senior Services located at 370 John James Audubon Parkway in Amherst. Meals are delivered by a group of dedicated volunteers, with clients paying a nominal fee for the service. AMOW relies upon fundraising events to keep costs low. The agency welcomes any contributions and new volunteers. For more information, please call AMOW at 636-3065.
