DUNKIRK, NY (February 24, 2017) – Larry Orcutt, President of the Moniuszko Club, along with club directors Greg Bundy, John Dillenkofer, Roger Herdzik and Jeff Kubera, recently presented Dunkirk-Fredonia Meals on Wheels with a $2,500 donation. The contribution is part of the Moniuszko Club’s commitment to providing support to charitable causes, as well as projects and activities that benefit the community.
“Meals on Wheels improves the quality of life for many of our area’s seniors, and helps overcome obstacles so that living at home can be an option,” said Larry Orcutt, Moniuszko Club President. “This donation is offered in appreciation for all the organization does to support area seniors.”
Dunkirk-Fredonia Meals on Wheels is a nonprofit service organization helping adults age 60 and over who need assistance in order to live at home as long as possible. Home delivered meals are an essential support and a safety net for seniors who deserve to age with hope, choice and dignity. In 2016 Meals on Wheels delivered over 75,000 meals to both homebound residents and senior dining sites.
Deb Pacos, Executive Director of Dunkirk-Fredonia Meals on Wheels accepted the contribution on behalf of the agency. “Please accept our sincerest thanks for the continued support of the Moniuszko Club’s officers and members,” stated Pacos. “We celebrate seniors as a vital part of our community and your generosity assists our efforts to make it easier for them to eat nutritious foods so they stay healthy and thrive at home, where they are happiest.”
A United Way Community Partner, Dunkirk-Fredonia Meals on Wheels also receives assistance from RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program) and Chautauqua County Office for the Aging. Additional funding is procured through grants, as well as donations from area businesses, service organizations and private individuals.
