As most of you are aware we get a free load of food from Hardester's and occasionally Grocery Outlet every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This program was designed for people in need of food assistant, however we do not turn away seniors who want a bag. Remember there are seniors who can’t leave there homes and rely on the free food.
People are taking more then they need from the food we bring to the center. We want to continue to bring the food here but we are asking everyone to please be more considerate, and mindful of other seniors in the area that don’t have a chance to get here before 11.
Remember-Its one bag per household.
March 23rd is the date selected for our March for Meals fund raiser. March for Meals is a National Campaign held during the month of March, initiated by the Meals on Wheels Association of America, which seeks to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on the part of the local communities.
Please join the Middletown Senior Center on March 23rd at 11:00 a.m. for our annual March for Meals event. For those who wish to participate, the route is from the Senior Center to the Middletown High School and back to the Center. It is a very relaxing pace. We urge all participants/spectators to ask friends and relatives to sponsor them for the event. After the March, there will be hot dogs available for a small fee at the Center. We are asking the community to join us and help end senior hunger. You do not need to march to contribute donations to the Meals on Wheels program.
Your sponsors’ donations in any amount support the nutrition programs providing Meals on Wheels and other needed help to seniors in Lake County. Centers are non-profit and donations are tax deductible. The Middletown Senior Center is a non-profit. We ask that all checks be made payable to Middletown Senor Center. Your support will strengthen the Senior Nutrition Programs that are authorized under the Older Americans Act, such as Meals on Wheels. Meals on Wheels is a delivery program designed to assist home-bound seniors in receiving a balanced nutritional meal each day.
As always, all donations are appreciated and deductible.
