EVENT: Giving Tuesday 2013
St Vincent Meals on Wheels wrote -Many of you may know that St. Vincent Meals on Wheels is the largest, privately funded senior nutrition program of its kind in the country - and that each day, approximately 4,000 meals are prepared, delivered and served here in Los Angeles. That's about 1 million meals a year!
But did you know that in addition to the 67 paid staff working alongside STVMOW founder Sr. Alice Marie every day, there are 300 volunteers that help fill the trays, load the vans and drive to the clients' homes across 43 square miles to accomplish this miraculous feat? That's a lot of Angelenos who have "earned their wings!"
Would you like to earn your wings, too, but find it a little challenging to work in the STVMOW Kitchen or drive a route? Not to worry - you can still help in our effort to end senior hunger by becoming a Virtual Volunteer: just forward this email along to all your friends, ask them to"Like" us on Facebook, follow us on Facebook, share our posts on Facebook, or re-tweet this Call to Action @STVMOW #STVMOWvirtualvolunteer
You'll be helping to spread the word about STVMOW's mission to feed hungry seniors in the fastest way possible to the greatest number of potential supporters. Each Like, Re-Tweet or Share is another powerful ripple on the ocean of our efforts!
PLUS! On Mon., December 2, we'll be hosting a "You Make It Happen" Thank You lunch in the STVMOW Kitchen, with pizza, drinks and pre-holiday cheer - the perfect opportunity for all our Virtual Volunteers to stop in and show your support for Sister's staff and volunteers. Virtual Volunteers will also be eligible for our exclusive PRIZE PACKAGE for the VV WITH MOST LIKES OR RE-TWEETS.
