The Turtle Creek Senior Center of Eastern Area Adult Services provides Meals on Wheels to fifteen local communities. These communities include Turtle Creek, Forest Hills, Swissvale, Braddock, and North Versailles.
There are nine routes with a combined total of over 200 people being delivered meals three days a week. Older adults receiving meals are at nutritional risk and are unable to obtain food or prepare meals and have no one available to prepare meals for them.
In the effort to serve these 200 plus homebound seniors, volunteers are recruited thru friends, family, and the community.
Businesses in these communities can help deliver the meals by adopting a route for two hours one day a month on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. Meals are picked up at the Turtle Creek Senior Center at 519 Penn Avenue in Turtle Creek around 10:00 am.
If your business is interested in taking part in this volunteer opportunity or have questions please contact the Turtle Creek Senior Center at 412-824-6880.
Individuals can also help deliver meals. The volunteer time commitment is at least two hours per month. Please contact the Turtle Creek Senior Center at 412-824-6880.
