We are pleased to announce that we received a grant in the amount of $3,250.00 from Publix Super Markets Charities. The funds will be used for The Waiting One Project. the Waiting One Project is a waiting list of individuals who have qualified for home delivered meals but no funding source is available.
We want to thank everyone who has expressed their support over the last several days. Meals on Wheels is much more than a meal! Our volunteers and staff are delivering more than good food; we are providing friendship, comfort, and hope. We believe that our elders and disabled neighbors retain a sense of independence and dignity when they are able to live in their own homes.
Here are a few ways that you can help to ensure that the people served by Meals on Wheels don’t face isolation & hunger.
