There are a lot of homebound seniors in Central Oregon who depend on volunteers from organizations like the Central Oregon Council on Aging (COCOA) to receive meals and get a welfare check.

 

Pamela Knorr with COCOA says they serve about 170-thousand meals each year and the volunteers get a lot of rewards from helping.  "There's some really committed volunteers. I just can't tell you what it feels like to drop of a meal for a senior. And have conversations with them. And hear some of their stories.  It’s just so heartwarming. I would equate it to what people feel like giving to children too. It’s just a heartwarming feeling."

 

Knorr says they can always use more volunteers, either for the "Meals on Wheels" program or other service, such a serving at the Senior Center.

 

The commitment can be for as little as four hours a month.  They need help in the tri-county area.

 

Contact the Central Oregon Council on Aging if you can help. (541-548-8817)
