Senior Programs “March for Meals” Looking for Community Champions
We need Community Champions!! Citrus County’s Meals on Wheels Program participates in the national March for Meals Campaign, which is an annual month-long event, sponsored by the Meals on Wheels Association of America). This event is designed to generate public awareness about senior hunger and to celebrate the invaluable services provided by Senior Nutrition Programs across the country.
March for Meals is also intended to help recruit new volunteers from our community and to increase fundraising from local businesses and supporters.
If you are a local business or community leader in Citrus County, we would be honored for you to participate in this year’s March for Meals “Community Champions” campaign by helping deliver meals to our homebound senior clients on a day of your choosing during the week of March 18th - March 22nd.
In doing so, you can help Citrus County’s Meals on Wheels Program gain much-needed visibility. Champions deliver with a current volunteer Meals on Wheels Driver and can choose which location they would like to deliver from. Delivery routes take approximately 2 hours. Photos are taken of champions with our clients and shared with the media. This is a great experience and enjoyed by our clients, volunteers, and our Champions.
