ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) — Darlene Ike, Executive Director of Meals on Wheels of Chemung County stopped by 18 news Today to discuss the need for volunteers at the organization.
Meals on Wheels of Chemung County serves 225 clients across Chemung County daily. Meals are delivered to those who are 60 years and older and home bound, or individuals under 60 who are home bound, disabled and/or on a fixed income.
