Let's Get Real: Help our Area Senior Citizens EAT!

THE STORY:

After reading a story on 5News about our area senior citizens food insecurities, I started thinking to myself. How, in this area full of giving, wonderful people and most importably --- money, are our are senior citizens having to decide between medication, utilities and food.

Northwest Arkansas is known for throwing lavish fundraising events with bubbling champagne, ball gowns, tuxedos and national music acts.

Is it necessary to get sponsor donations, then spend thousands and thousands of dollars to rent out spaces, hire caterers, create high end videos and hire expensive talent just to get a check from someone? On top of all of that, some of these events charge upwards of $300 for a ticket.

It's time to bring the idea of fundraising back down to earth. Think about how far $10, $25 or $100 can go to keeping our senior citizens fed. Think about how much of a burden they would have lifted from them if a simple necessity, like food, was delivered to them at no cost.

Every penny donated to this site will be given directly to Meals on Wheels throughout Northwest Arkansas. Pull that credit card out and give. No amount is too small or too large.
