Meals-on-Wheels Greater San Diego supports our local seniors in a number of ways, and we’re doing our part to welcome their new senior members this holiday season by helping them with their welcome packages.
In North County alone, Meals-on-Wheels has about 400 current seniors it’s helping and takes on at least 50 new members each month!
Our goal is to deliver to 100 Welcome Packages for the new seniors that Meals-on-Wheels takes on this 2104 holiday season. This means we need 1,000 items to fill 10 items per bag, and we need your help!
Please help us reach this goal, and the hearts of our elderly, by donating practical home goods with us. If you can bring your items to our office in Solana Beach that would be amazing! You can find our location and directions below.
Want us to come to you? If you’re a local business in the north county San Diego area and wish to set up a donation box in your office for others to drop off items, we will come and pick them up!
Drop off Hours: Monday – Friday 8am – 5:30pm
Last day for drop off is Thursday, November 20th 2014
Please contact Christina@organikseo.com if you would like to schedule a pick-up at your office location.
