Your Gift Benefits Meals On Wheels
As our population ages, the number of people in need of meals continues to grow. Meals On Wheels is not covered by insurance, and although we are grateful for funding from the United Way and the Office of the Aging, we cannot rely solely upon these sources to meet the increasing demand for meals. Donor support is critical to keeping our seniors healthy and safe in their homes. Here’s how you can help:
Purchase Meals to Relieve the Waiting List
As federal funding continues to decrease, our waiting list for meals continues to grow. Your gift of $2,160 will take one person off the waiting list by purchasing enough meals for an entire year.
Host an Event
Fund Warmest Wishes
Each December, volunteers deliver holiday gift bags to our MOW participants most in need. For many, this is the only gift they will receive during the holiday season. Your gift of $1,000 will purchase 100 gift bags.
Provide Meals to Hospice Families
Eating well is often the last thing on someone’s mind when they’re losing a family member. Your gift of $350 will feed five family members one meal a day for two weeks.
Purchase Insulated Food Bags
The delivery of frozen meals allows us to keep our participants well fed throughout the entire week. In order to do so, insulated food bags are critical. Your gift of $375 will purchase five bags.
Donate Your Car

Wrap a Delivery Van
Help us spread Meals On Wheels awareness by giving one of our delivery vans a makeover. Businesses who donate $2,400 to sponsor a wrap will also receive advertising space on a van that travels daily throughout Monroe County.
