A campaign called Meals on Wheels in the Welland area promotes nutritious meals for older individuals as well as warm friendly smiles. This campaign aims to allow seniors to live independently and also reduce the stress on their families.
"Every day there is a little visit," said Cherie Della-Gatta, the program's volunteer co-ordinator. "Every day someone sees the parents and does a security check."
Many "seniors would not be capable of living at home independently" said Ward 1 Coun. Leo Van Vliet.
Those interested in volunteering for this program, which is sponsored by Community Support Services of Niagara, can call Cherie Della-Gatta at 905-788-3181.
