Warm meals warming the hearts of homebound seniors
DOVER, DE (November 27, 2015) — Every day over 4,000 homebound seniors in Delaware receive what may be their only meal of the day from Meals on Wheels. Meals on Wheels provides meal deliveries for the senior citizens of Delaware who may have trouble leaving their homes due to lack of mobility or other resources. Not only does the organization provide food for homebound seniors, but the delivery personnel are sometimes the only human interaction the clients have throughout the day. To help the cause, Meals on Wheels Delaware recently received a generous $7,000 donation to benefit their organization from Dover Federal Credit Union.
In addition to serving as the presenting sponsor for Sip and Savor, Dover Federal contributed an additional $1185 on behalf of employee pledges raised from Dover Federal jeans day fundraising efforts held throughout September.
