We Need Your Help!
Since 1971, Homebound Meals has been delivering hot meals to homebound people in our community via a large group of volunteer drivers. We have grown to be one of the leading delivery programs in the state! We pride ourselves in making sure our clients are provided with medically tailored meals, designed to reduce the effects of their chronic diseases and maintain optimal health. Our goal is to give people the choice to live and recuperate safely at home.
In order to serve our clients, regardless of their ability to pay, Homebound Meals established a Financial Assistance fund to help subsidize meal costs for people in need. In the past few years there has been an increase in the percentage of clients that are in need of our help. Nearly 60% of our clients are now receiving substantial assistance. This is where we need YOUR help.
This year we are trying to raise $50,000 to add to our fund. Throughout the next seven months, Homebound Meals will host a series of events, big and small, and ways you can help! Here we will present opportunities for you to get involved, just look for the “Go” signs.
All proceeds from this campaign will be dedicated to subsidizing meals! No fluff, no fuss, just meals!
Remember, behind these special meals are very grateful people. Here are just a few:
“Homebound Meals provided much needed meals to my 96-year-old father. He was able to stay in his own home until the very end. You do a good service and he looked forward to the deliveries – thank you.” ~ Walter’s daughter
“I wanted to thank-you for delivering to my aunt. I am the only one she has, and I am in the military overseas. Your meals and checking on my aunt every day is reassuring for me. I really appreciate all that you do.” ~ Jessica's niece
