CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WKBW) — Effective November 16 the Cheektowaga Senior Center says its doors will be closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Officials say although the center will be closed for all recreational activities the following will still continue:

  • The Senior Going Places Van Service will still be running.
  • The home delivered meals program (Meals on Wheels) through FeedMore WNY will continue to deliver meals.
  • The Senior Center Office Staff will still be in the office Monday through Friday, 9am-4:30 pm to answer questions and offer assistance to any Cheektowaga Seniors in need of help. Call 686-3930 for assistance.
  • Jamie Acoff, the Center’s Outreach Coordinator, will still be assisting her senior clients and keeping her appointments.
  • Though the Stay Fit Dining Lunch Program is on PAUSE, a Frozen Meal Option is going to be offered to seniors who normally visit the Center for lunch. Details for that program are coming soon. Call the Center at 686-3930 for details.

The closure will be in place until further notice.
