Meals on Wheels of Chester County would like to thank all the generous donors and participants in our first online auction. Your contributions will be used to purchase nutritious meals for homebound seniors in need especially during the COVID-19 crisis.
Please put a cooler or container outside your door for the volunteer to put your meal in. For the safety of both our volunteers and our clients, we would like to eliminate face-to-face contact until further notice.
If you do not have a cooler or some covered container for the volunteer to put your meal in, call our office at 610-430-8500. We will get you a cooler.
If you are unable to get up to retrieve your meal from a cooler (have limited mobility), most volunteers will bring your meal inside the home. Any problems or questions, give us a call at 610-430-8500.
