SUPPORT OUR SENIORS
Local Meals on Wheels programs provide daily nutritious meals, nourishing companionship and critical safety checks to America's homebound seniors. Each donation helps these programs enable seniors to age with independence and dignity in their own homes, where they want to be. Since its inception thirteen years ago, the Subaru Share the Love Event has helped deliver more than 2.5 million meals to America’s seniors!
Christmas Appeal Letter
We are very sad to share the passing of our fearless leader Mrs. Darlene Ike on Wednesday, December 1, 2021. Darlene was the driving force behind Meals on Wheels for over 25 years. She took a tiny operation, running out of three buildings, to a central location on Fox Street, which she also outgrew because she kept finding more and more people to feed. Then she found, purchased, completely renovated and opened what is today “The Darlene J. Ike Building” at our current location. Darlene will be missed here and all throughout our county every day. But we promise to keep her dreams alive so her legacy will continue for years to come.
