30% of our program is unfunded. The balance must come from donations. We can all be proud of supporting our seniors.
Our Seniors need your help.
The nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks, Senior Meals on Wheels provides helps seniors cope with the three biggest threats of aging: hunger, isolation, and loss of independence. It also enables their families to sleep better knowing that Senior Meals on Wheels is keeping a watchful eye over their aging loved ones and raising a red flag if something doesn’t seem right.
- Over the past 20 years the senior population has grown over 34%.
- Federal funding has decreased 18% over the years.
- The fastest growing segment of the US population is aged 75+.
- Nationally 9.3 million seniors struggle with hunger.
This has led to waiting lists across the country for seniors who need Meals on Wheels to remain independent and healthy. We must rely on other sources of funding to address the need.
You can help our seniors avoid less desirable alternatives such as hospitalization and nursing home placements by giving generously today!
