Van Stolen From Meals On Wheels [UPDATE]

Updated at 10 p.m. on November 30: The Meals On Wheels van was stolen exactly a week ago, and there is a happy ending to this story. Today, exactly one week later, the good folks at SEFCU donated a new Dodge Grand Caravan. This is great news, and they will continue their great service to the Albany area.

A van belonging to the Meals On Wheels Albany branch was stolen earlier today.

It was taken from their parking lot on Rensselaer Street in Albany. A driver of the Senior Services of Albany noticed the van was missing as he was beginning to preparing to deliver meals. Meals On Wheels is a program that delivers meals to about 1000 home-bound senior citizens in the Albany County area.

The van had about $500 dollars of equipment which includes a couple of freezers and thermal bags for delivering food. There was no food in the van. The vans used by Meals On Wheels are not easily replaceable, and puts a big burden on the organization.

The vehicle is a 1997 green Plymouth Voyager, with a license plate number of “DHE 5188.” It possibly has the number 14 on the front bumper and also a Meals For Wheels sign on the door. If you any information about the van, you can call 438-4000.

If you can donate a vehicle, call (518) 465-6465 .
