The holidays are fast approaching. For many, the season is a festive one; full of laughter, gifts, and gatherings with loved ones. Unfortunately, for others, the holidays are a time that many go without the necessities that most of us take for granted. The sad reality is that numerous seniors will have to choose whether to buy food or their medications.
Would you please consider giving a gift of meals to those seniors in need?
Meals on Wheels of Eastern Kansas, Inc. is proud to participate in this year’s Subaru “Share the Love” event that will take place from November 16, 2018 to January 2, 2019. People who purchase or lease a new Subaru during this period may choose a participating charity to receive $250. Learn more at www.mealsonwheelsamerica.org/sharethelove.

Candy canes (large or mini), hot cocoa, granola bars
Cash donation to purchase items (please contact Kim to coordinate pick-up — see contact info below)
Donations will be accepted at the Meals on Wheels office at 2701 SW East Circle Dr or can be given to the Meals on Wheels staff person where you pick-up to deliver meals. Donations will be excepted now through Friday, December 14th.
