We have canceled our annual Sumptuous Evening Gala event as planned this year. We know many of you look forward to this fun evening each year. COVID 19, does not allow us the opportunity to gather in person.
Our needs are still the same, we are continuing to serve hot nutritious meals to the homebound , during COVID19 we have seen this program grow. In Kansas, over 62,500 seniors are threatened by hunger and nearly 160,000 are isolated and living alone. Meals on Wheels is the only federally supported program designed specifically to meet the nutritional and social needs of seniors.
Together we can ensure seniors in Kansas can remain healthier at home avoiding more costly healthcare facilities.
One aspect of our event has always been our auction and the opportunity to provide meal packs – you can still do this. We will be holding our silent auction to benefit our charity care for all programs September 1 – September 25 – meal packs will be part of the auction. If you would like to be notified when the auction begins please send your cellphone to Emily at email@example.com.
You can support Meals on Wheels with a gift today, providing a hot meal and daily check-in. This is so important, and as the virus has separated us this contact daily with someone has been invaluable. Your belief in this is so appreciated.
You can make your gift restricted to the program of Meals on Wheels today, using the form below.
