Every little step gets us to our goal.
It's that time of year again when I take my sneakers out for the good of our elders not just my own good! My grandmother taught me the importance of Meals on Wheels, not because she needed it but because she knew others who did. She spoke so kindly of the program, the volunteers, and the recipients.
Please consider donating to this very worthy cause.
"Meals on Wheels operates in virtually every community in America through our network of more than 5,000 independently-run local programs. While the diversity of each program's services and operations may vary based on the needs and resources of their communities, they are all committed to supporting their senior neighbors to live healthier and more nourished lives in their own homes.
At the core of the Meals on Wheels service is a nutritious meal, companionship and a watchful eye on the health and safety of our seniors."
If you knew your elderly neighbor was too frail or sick to cook for themselves tonight, would you bring them a meal? Of course you would!
So would I. That’s why I’m walking in the 2018 Meals on Wheels Walkathon on Saturday, April 28. You can help ensure that 1,083 elders/year can get a hot, balanced meal AND wellness check by a compassionate volunteer driver 5 days/week.
Please donate today. Every dollar you give stays in the community and goes directly to support Meals on Wheels.
