From the Executive Director

 

o   Did you know that last year, we served over 82,000 fresh, hot meals to 877 Yolo County elderly neighbors?

o   The money to pay for producing and delivering these meals is only partially funded by the government.

o   We count on our Yolo County neighbors – individuals and businesses – to help us provide the majority of it.

o   On Thursday, May 4th, from midnight to midnight, the BIG DAY OF GIVING offers supporters of our work – like you – to make a donation that packs some extra punch! How?

§  Generous donors Yolo Federal Credit Union and Friends of Meals on Wheels have provided $11,000 of matching funds: every dollar you donate is matched, up to $11,000.

§  Random prizes of $1,000 will be given to organizations throughout the day.

§  Every hour, $2,000 of incentive prize money will be contributed: half to the organization with the most money raised in that hour, and half to the one with the most donors.  Serving lunch each day is what we do, so, Let’s Do Lunch! Donate between 12noon -1:00pm to help us win!

o   It’s easy to donate! Click: https://bigdayofgiving.org/mowyolo and follow the directions!

o   Your donation helps us provide a daily, nutritious, hot lunch for our Yolo County elderly neighbors at home, as well as hot lunches each weekday at senior centers in Davis, West Sacramento, Winters and Woodland.

o   Our continued success in delivering this program for 42 years is directly related to the generosity of support in our community.

o   THANK YOU!
