During this time of renewing relationships with family and friends over a bountiful Thanksgiving meal, I like to think of all those who we reach with nutritious daily Meals on Wheels thanks to your thoughtful generous contributions. Donations from individuals such as yourself along with grants from various charitable organizations are the largest single source of funding for Meals on Wheels in our county. Together we reached nearly 2,200 homebound elders with 420,000 meals this past fiscal year. As you ponder all that you are thankful for this holiday season, I cannot thank you enough on behalf of your homebound elderly neighbors for your kind life sustaining generosity towards them. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.
