Meals on Wheels Could Take a Funding Hit In New Bill Proposal

By | A Lifetimes' Wisdom | No Comments

Senior Meals on wheels serves 1,000 fresh, nutritious meals per day. Not only do we provide meals, we perform safety checks, call family and authorities when necessary, and most importantly our drivers & volunteers provide much needed companionship; all of these things help keep people out of nursing homes, and in their own environment.

Unfortunately, our funding has been cut by 32%, and with this proposed budget cut we could lose an additional 18%. We serve people with disabilities including Dementia and, Alzheimer’s, in addition 42% of our clients are veterans. Most of our program is unfunded, and the remaining amount comes from donations. Already we struggle to feed our senior citizens, so if you or your business would like to support our wonderful services, please donate today; because here at Senior Meals on Wheels its more than just a meal.
