Our activity structure allows participants to make choices, plan their own schedule and do the things they enjoy doing. We offer many ways for people to use the skills they've learned in their lives, socialize with peers, stay active and learn new things through fellowship.

Schaner Adult Center serves the need of the older adults throughout our community.
Volunteers are needed
Volunteers are needed to pickup and deliver nutritious home cooked meals to homebound seniors residing in the East Pennsboro area. Two meals, one hot and one cold are delivered three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Meals are $7.00 per day. Some of your neighbors are in dire need of this assistance. In order to provide this service in the Enola area, volunteers are desperately needed. A driver and helper would pickup meals and deliver them to clients in the Enola area. Deliveries are usually completed by 12:30pm. Meals on Wheels is searching for volunteers to keep this worthwhile program going. Could you spare a couple of hours each week or part of a day once a month to provide this much needed service to your homebound neighbors who are in need? A coordinator for the East Pennsboro area as well as drivers are needed. Please consider this worthy cause. You can contact the Mechanicsburg Area Meals on Wheels, Inc. directly at 717-697-5011 or the Schaner Adult Center at 717-732-3915.
