On Thursday, October 12, 2017, members of The Lions Club of Buffalo presented their Community Betterment Grant to the Meals on Wheels Foundation of Western New York. The $6,080 grant will be used to purchase classroom style tables for use in the Meals on Wheels Community Center. The grant also will update the Meals on Wheels board room with a large screen TV for use in meetings and conferences.
“Our Community Center provides a low-cost space for local organizations and companies to host meetings and training opportunities,” said Kelly Campbell, Planned and Major Gifts Officer for the Meals on Wheels Foundation of Western New York. “All proceeds earned from renting this space go toward our core meal delivery program. Through the Lions Club of Buffalo’s grant, we will be able to open our Community Center’s doors to a wider range of local organizations.”
We thank the Lions Club of Buffalo for their generous commitment to Meals on Wheels, and for joining us on a tour of our commissary.
