HOLIDAY CARING FOR OLDER ADULTS IN THE COMMUNITY
Spread warmth and cheer this holiday season by giving to
local seniors in need. From now through December, you can provide the gift of meals
to local homebound seniors by purchasing a meal certificate. Certificates are
available for a day, week, month, year, or any denomination you choose to
contribute. Meals and accompanying gift certificates will be delivered to
recipients through the Meals on Wheels program throughout the holiday season. This is a special opportunity to let the isolated and elderly know you care.
Certificates may be purchased by coming into a center or over the phone.
You can also participate in our Holiday Gift Angels program.
Angel gift tags with the name of an older adult, their gift wish, and donation
instructions will be available in all centers by November 1. Gifts will be
delivered to the recipients in December.
Note: Older adults in the homebound program will receive
both meals and gifts, but the most urgent need each year is for the meals.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
