Subaru of America's Share the Love Impacts Local Meals on Wheels
By: EAC Network
"We are delighted to have this added support to our Meals on Wheels program," stated Carol O'Neill, Senior Director of Senior & Nutritional Services. "The funds from this grant will directly help to end senior hunger by providing meals to homebound seniors. Along with the meals, we bring a friendly smile and a "safety check visit" to brighten the day for lonely seniors."
Nassau County seniors 60 and over who are unable to shop and cook because of medical reasons, can call 516-539-0150 x219 to see if they are eligible for home deliveries.
"Subaru retailers and Meals on Wheels have worked together since 2008, helping deliver one million meals to seniors every day," said Ellie Hollander, President and CEO, MOWA. "We are truly honored to be one of Subaru's national charities for the seventh consecutive year. Their vital support enables us to power local communities in their fight against senior hunger and isolation all year long."
