Join the March For Meals

February 3, 2005

Annual March for Meals Campaign Expanded

Home Health United’s Meals on Wheels Program will again join with the Meals on Wheels Association of American (MOWAA) in its "March for Meals" campaign. The goals of March for Meals are to raise awareness of hunger among the elderly and disabled, recruit volunteers and increase donations for the program.

Meals on Wheels delivers meals seven days a week, 365 days a year to homebound residents in Madison, Middleton and Monona. In 2004, volunteers delivered nearly 90,000 meals.

In addition to the mail solicitation, this year Meals on Wheels plans to hold several events to help meet their March for Meals goal. Along with many other businesses, Oscar Mayer/Kraft participates in delivering meals and will give major support to March for Meals. Mark your calendar and watch for these events:

  • Friday, March 18th from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Hot Dog Sale and viewing of the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile at Wal-Mart West
  • Saturday, March 19th from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Hot Dog Sale and viewing of the Oscar Mayer Weinermobile at Wal-Mart East
  • Saturday March 26th from 9:30 a.m. -12:00 p.m. Bake Sale at Westgate Mall
  • March 14-17 "Big Wheels" deliver meals

Meal cost is $5.75 and Meals on Wheels receives funds from United Way of Dane County and the Dane County Aging Program in addition to private donations. To join the March for Meals Campaign as a volunteer, contact Sarah Olson at 608-276-7598 or at MOW@hhuvns.org.
