MARCH FOR MEALS SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITY
Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency – Meals on Wheels is participating in the March for Meals Campaign, a national effort initiated by the Meals on Wheels Association of America, to raise awareness of senior hunger and to encourage action on the part of local communities. Hundreds of Senior Nutrition Programs across the United States, like NMCAA – Meals on Wheels, will promote March for Meals through partnerships with local businesses, fundraising initiatives, and volunteer recruitment.
We invite you to become a March for Meals Campaign Sponsor. All funds raised go directly towards providing hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors in our community. Donations remain in the county in which they are received. The March for Meals Campaign will include:
- Meals on Wheels Fundraiser at Moomers: Saturday, March 22, 2014
- Community Champions Week: March 17 – 21, 2014
- Publicity to inspire donations throughout the month!
This local support is more crucial now than ever before. This year, we are experiencing significant cuts in Federal & State funding. In order to keep serving all those who are eligible for and need Meals on Wheels, our goal is to raise $100,000 by 9/30/14. To date, we have raised just over $31,000 and have $69,000 to go!
