“Step Up to the Plate” at Dash’s Market to Support Meals on Wheels

 

Dash’s Markets and Meals on Wheels for Western New York, Inc. are once again teaming up for their annual “Step Up to the Plate” fundraiser. From Sunday, November 12 until Saturday, December 9, 2017, patrons of all four Western New York Dash’s Markets will have the option to add a $1, $3, or $5 donation at checkout.

“Every Thanksgiving season, we look forward to the start of Step Up to the Plate, and to the continuation of our long-standing partnership with Dash’s Markets,” Lisa Woodring, Chief Development Officer for the Meals on Wheels Foundation of Western New York said. “Step Up to the Plate epitomizes the idea that many small contributions can add up to make a huge impact in the community. When preparing your shopping list for the holiday, remember to add a dollar to help feed your homebound elderly and disabled neighbors as well.”

This is the seventh year for the Step Up to the Plate program. Launched in 2011, the fundraiser has generated more than $50,000 in donations for the Meals on Wheels Foundation of Western New York.
