For 35 years, we have been delivering nutritious meals and safety checks to the senior community of South Florida. Throughout these past few months, we have been working tirelessly to continue providing our services to hundreds of seniors who have been impacted by the ongoing challenges as a result of Covid-19.
Since March, we have experienced a 500% increase in calls looking for meals and a 300% increase in the number of home-delivered meals provided.
In an effort to continue serving our senior clients and add new clients to our program, we have partnered with our donor management software company, Arreva, to launch a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign. This campaign is a call to action to our community to help raise funds for these much needed nutritious meals for our senior neighbors.
We are so grateful to have you as a supporter of the Meals on Wheels South Florida mission. As such, we are asking you to join the Delivering Hope peer-to-peer fundraising campaign and help us continue to deliver more than a meal to our senior community. Help us deliver hope!
