Grant for Meals on Wheels
ELMIRA (WENY)--- Meals on Wheels of Chemung County is partnering with an insurance company so seniors don't go hungry.
Erie Insurance donated $2500 dollars to meals on wheels of Chemung County. Today, they continued to support the organization by preparing meals for local seniors. Together, the volunteers are preparing more than 70 meals.
"There have been meals on wheels across the country have closed down because they don't have volunteers funding," said Executive Director, Darlene Ike. " I don't think I could ever say to someone that you have to wait, or that you can't have food because food is a necessity for everyone. The seniors are the ones who built our country and they are the ones who we should be taking care of now."
