March For Meals
Submitted By Patricia Osage
LIFE ElderCare will be participating in the national 2013 March For Meals campaign by hosting distinguished mayors delivering Meals on Wheels on Wednesday, March 20.
"In this tough economy, the food and human contact we provide to seniors in this community is needed more than ever," said Patricia Osage, Executive Director of LIFE. "We would love to have the community to come out and see how the work happens on a daily basis. Or you could just come to cheer on these wonderful Mayors for taking time out to see how it's done firsthand! Our clients are count on us for the basics and Mayor Harrison, Mayor Dutra-Vernacci, and Mayor Nagy know we can't let them down."
"Our Meals On Wheels programs are on the front lines every day in the battle against senior hunger," said MOWAA President Ellie Hollander. "March for Meals is a time when communities can come together to stand with their local Meals On Wheels program and support our mission to end senior hunger in America by the year 2020."
LIFE ElderCare serves 378 frail or disabled people every day throughout the Tri-City in need of a warm meal. If you or a loved one needs this, too, call (510) 574-2092.
