During the next few months, Metro Meals on Wheels is involved in several fundraising events. Without your support, we would not be able to deliver and serve meals to senior citizens in Boise and throughout Ada County. Thank you!
March for Meals:
March for Meals is a month-long observance spotlighting senior hunger and food insecurity throughout the nation. The 1/3 mile march event will depart from the bandshell in Kleiner Park (Meridian) on Saturday, March 19th, from 10:30 to 11:00 a.m. No entry fee is required and there will be refreshments served and entertainment provided by “Prime Time Swingers”. Food Services of America will donate $5 for each marcher (equal to one nutritious meal for a senior). Our goal is to have the largest march event in the country for the second straight year!
Change 4 Change:
Metro Meals on Wheels is excited to be named as one of the Change 4 Change partners with Boise Co-Op throughout the months of April, May and June at their Village at Meridian location. When customers take in their own reusable shopping bags, they can either earn 10¢ off their bill or choose to donate the dime to one of the pre-selected Change 4 Change partners. The Village location for the Boise Co-Op is 2350 N. Eagle Road, Meridian.
Idaho Gives is a statewide, 24-hour giving day taking place on May 5th, 2016. Every year on one given day, people across the state of Idaho come together for Idaho nonprofits through their online donations. A link to make your contribution will be provided on the Idaho Gives site in the near future.
