The holidays are fast approaching. For many, the season is a festive one; full of laughter, gifts, and gatherings with loved ones. Unfortunately, for others, the holidays are a time that many go without the necessities that most of us take for granted. The sad reality is that numerous seniors will have to choose whether to buy food or their medications.
Would you please consider giving a gift of meals to those seniors in need?
Meals on Wheels of Eastern Kansas, Inc. is proud to participate in this year’s Subaru “Share the Love” event that will take place from November 16, 2017 to January 2, 2018. People who purchase or lease a new Subaru during this period may choose a participating charity to receive $250. Learn more at www.mealsonwheelsamerica.org/sharethelove.
Help Meals on Wheels fill holiday gift bags for our clients!
A tradition will continue again this year by providing each home delivered client a holiday gift bag. In some cases, this will be the only gift they receive during the holiday season. Meals on Wheels will be filling approximately 600 bags this year and your help is needed! MOW is asking for ANY size donation that you can contribute.
Items needed include: socks (men's athletic socks), hats, gloves, scarves, candy canes, hot chocolate packets, pens or pencils, notepads, tissues, or travel size bathroom items. Monetary donations will also be accepted to purchase fresh fruit and other items as needed for bags
Donations will be accepted at the Meals on Wheels office at 2701 SW East Circle Drive South, Suite 2 (Hummer Sports Park next to the Kanza Cafe) or can be given to Meals on Wheels drivers where you pick up to deliver meals. Donations excepted now through Friday, December 15th.
Thank you for making this holiday season bright for those less fortunate!
