By making a donation today, you’re joining a team effort to create a network of support for our neighbors. Our program provides sustenance and more: our daily visits reduce social isolation, allow individuals to remain longer in their homes, reduce emergency room visits, and engage volunteers in meaningful connections. We’re an independent nonprofit charitable organization (NOT a chapter of a larger group), recognized by the IRS as tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Donations to us are eligible to be charitable deductions. Our taxpayer identification number (TIN or EIN) is 52-0943628. We rely on our local community for donations to keep our wheels rolling and our homebound neighbors fed! [NOTE: If you are making a contribution towards the cost of a specific client’s meals, please make your payment on the CLIENTS tab.]
Thank you for your online donation by credit card or via your bank account (ACH).
Join our “Fan Club” by making your donation recur monthly! Our Fan Club supports not just our regular meal delivery but also allows us to purchase fans for clients who need them in the summer (and heaters in the winter!). Join our Fan Club to get special updates and an annual small but very cool thank you gift with our name and logo.
