“This is a fun event with a large auction that encourages both shooters and non-shooters to participate in an event that makes a significant impact on our underserved vulnerable senior population,” said Summer Day, Executive Director, MOWMC.
Founded in 1973, Meals on Wheels delivered 143,473 nutritious meals this past fiscal year to the fragile homebound senior population. Each meal delivery is accompanied by a friendly smile and conversation, helping to reduce senior loneliness. These visits also serve as a safety check, ensuring each senior is safe in their home. Meals on Wheels Senior Rides program helps eliminate the isolation associated with the inability to drive, while providing much needed transportation services to doctors, dialysis, grocery store, and other appointments.
Volunteers are always needed to help with delivering meals, events, prepare mailings, and assist with program needs. The Angel Tree needs volunteers to connect with clients to establish their needs for the Angel Tree Gift Program.
