VON Meals on Wheels Secret Santa Campaign

 

 

 

 

 

 

DONATE to provide a nutritious meal and warm smile to a senior in the Windsor community this holiday season. 

 

It’s that time of year again! The time for cheer, for visiting and for being thankful for the gifts of health, joy and happiness. Many are very fortunate at this time of year while others simply need a little bit of help.

Please help VON Windsor-Essex by supporting our Secret Santa Campaign. This annual campaign’s purpose is to raise enough funds to provide a free, healthy turkey dinner to our VON Meals on Wheels clients. Many of these clients live alone and depend on our services for health and wellness in addition to a friendly visit. When our clients receive their holiday meal it comes with a card telling them their community cares about them and is thinking about them this holiday season. Many seniors are isolated over the holidays and we want our clients to have a caring connection to their community. 

For only $6.25 you can buy a meal for a senior in the Windsor community. Tax receipts are given for donations over $10.

Testimonial:

"The most important benefit I receive from the Meals on Wheels Program is that it has allowed me to remain living independently in my own home. I also look forward to my daily visits from the volunteers. They always have a way of brightening my day."
