It is March for Meals Champions Week! NH State Representative Joe Schapiro gets ready to deliver Meals on Wheels with driver Dean Robinson.
March for Meals is a march we can all get behind!
During March, HCS is raising awareness of the growing need in Cheshire County for Meals on Wheels. Cheshire County has the highest percentage in New Hampshire of those over the age of 65 with Alzheimer’s disease, and in many communities over 50% of the population over age 65 has four or more chronic conditions. Despite the growing need, the program will experience a 35% drop in the number of meals funded by state and federal sources this year.
To continue to serve all those who are homebound and in need of the program, Meals on Wheels is asking for community support.
$25 will provide food for a senior for one week
$50 will support two weeks
$100 will provide meals for a month
If you are able to help, donations can be mailed to HCS, 312 Marlboro Street, Keene, NH 03431 or you can give online here.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Meals on Wheels – Then and Now
Today, we are still going strong – thanks to the support from our community!
