Make sure local seniors are taken care of

Nearly 9 million seniors in America face the threat of hunger. And that number is steadily increasing.

That's why this year, for Giving Tuesday, I'm asking you to join me in supporting Meals on Wheels. Your gift, no matter the size, will ensure seniors in America are well-nourished.

Meals on Wheels is a terrific example of a community-based startup that recognized a problem and provided a solution.

What began as a humble grassroots program to deliver food to isolated seniors has grown into a major public-private partnership. Today, 2 million volunteers deliver meals to seniors facing the threat of hunger in almost every community in America.

Unfortunately, Meals on Wheels is underfunded. Eight out of 10 low income food-insecure seniors are not receiving the home-delivered meals they need.

We can do better.

Your donation to Meals on Wheels will help provide nutritious meals, friendly visits to isolated seniors, and safety checks that enable America's seniors to live independent, dignified lives.

Make a gift to Meals on Wheels today.

With gratitude,

Ron
