BENEFITING: MEALS ON WHEELS WEST
ORGANIZER: MEALS ON WHEELS WEST
EVENT: Honda LA Marathon 2012
EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012
Meals on Wheels is an organization that provides meals for people who have a very low income and usually are unable to leave their residence.
As a former volunteer of this organization, I know first hand that all the people who receive meals REALLY COUNT ON THEM. They also love that another person comes over to visit a few minutes with them. Many times "you" are the only visitors they receive the entire day.
I hope that you will donate to this organization or at least volunteer your time to help and see for yourself the impact you WILL MAKE.

Our team, Team Meals, will be running the 2012 LA Marathon to raise awareness and funds for us, so we can better serve our clients, and deliver more meals and smiles than ever before!
No matter why a person is homebound, age, health, a disability, that person faces two major difficulties: poor nutrition and loneliness. Every day, in their own homes, our clients receive lunch and dinner, the daily newspaper, fresh fruit, and companionship. This is often the only companionship they receive that day, that week, that month or even that year.
Because of our service and wonderful volunteers, our clients are able to remain in their own homes even though they cannot care for themselves. We are not just delivering meals, we are delivering smiles one meal at a time.
