BENEFITING: Alameda County Meals on Wheels
If you can't feed one hundred people, feed one. - Mother Teresa.
Our team is running SF Half Marathon 2013 to raise money to help feed Seniors through the Alameda County Meals On Wheels (ACMOW) program.
Every Dollar You Contribute Helps Feed Seniors in this program -
• $30 feeds a senior for one week
• $120 feeds a senior for one month
• $720 feeds a senior for six months
• $1,440 feeds a senior for one year!
Proceeds from this fundraiser support the six Meals on Wheels programs in Alameda County, providing warm, home delivered meals to homebound seniors every day. The caring check-in reassures seniors and their families that someone will knock on the door every day, and ensure that the senior is living safely at home, where they want to be.
My heart has been greatly touched by the elderly in my life. We are all likely to require assistance someday in our own lives. Some of us have family and friends close by, but others do not. It is organizations like Meals on Wheels that reach out to those in need when family and friends are not there to help.
Please be generous for this good cause!
ps: Thanks to all the donors who contributed in the prior years towards this cause. Please be as generous or more.
