BENEFITING: Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels
ORGANIZER: Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels
EVENT: Art Van Charity Challenge
EVENT DATE: May 18, 2015
Everyone knows that Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels serves meals to the homebound elderly, disabled and ill residents of eastern Washtenaw county. Yet, we are so much more. We are our clients, our volunteers, and staff. In the last year we have grown. We have eliminated our waitlist and new clients can begin recieving services within a couple of days. We have developed partnerships with the Ford Motor Co, Huron Valley Humane Society, Eastern Michigan, and the University of Michigan.
We want to continue to improve our services and meet the needs of our clients. You can help us achieve this goal by contributing to the Art Van Charity Challenge. Every dollar raised in this event will go to providing meals for our clients.
From May 18th to June 22 your online donation can help Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels to “Drive the Wheels that Serves the Meals”. By raising $20,000, we will be able to meet the meal needs of our clients for 2 months, while $60,000 would meet these needs for half a year.
The grand prize of $75,000, along with the money raised during this challenge, could feed all 200 Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels clients for over a year .
