Today is #GivingTuesday, an online giving celebration that began back in 2012 and is recognized as the kick-off of the giving season. Today is a day to join others around the world in celebrating generosity by donating to a cause you believe in to make a positive impact and specifically here in WNY through our #NYGivesDay page.
The Meals on Wheels Foundation for WNY is asking for your support to give the gift of food and friendship to a homebound senior in your community. Did you know that a donation of just $12 will provide a nutritious lunch and dinner for a day to a senior who is unable to shop for or prepare meals for themselves? We often take for granted the accessibility to hot food, as well as the companionship of our family, friends and coworkers. For those that are homebound and cannot fix meals for themselves or get out into the community on their own, hunger and loneliness are real threats to their wellbeing.
The daily visits from Meals on Wheels not only provide nutritious food, but also a few minutes of human connection that benefit both those who deliver and those that receive meals.
Please join us in celebrating #GivingTuesday and #NYGivesDay by making a donation today: https://www.nygivesday.org/organizations/meals-on-wheels-for-western-new-york-inc
