This year, more than ever before, Meals on Wheels (MOW) is asking all companies, schools, civic organizations, and individuals to join in the effort to show our elderly that SENIORS ROCK, that they are valued and cared for. Join us in our fight end senior hunger in the Cayman Islands by participating in an island wide Seniors Rock Dress Down Day on Friday, 16th October.
Every weekday, over 120 Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver nutritious meals and hearty soups, with a warm smile to over 300 seniors, homebound and disabled persons. This service provided by Meals on Wheels helps inspire and encourage wellbeing, while preventing isolation and loneliness which can lead to depression among other illnesses.
There are currently 5 community kitchens which provide meals to seniors in North Side, East End, Bodden Town, George Town and West Bay. Meals on Wheels continues to receive referrals of seniors, disabled, homebound and infirmed persons in the various districts who are needing assistance. To continue its missions to ensure that no senior goes hungry, MOW raises funds to cover the costs of meals, which are provided at no cost. “This Dress Down Day aims to raise enough funds to feed seniors for an entire month” said Jennifer West, MOW General Manager. Ms. West went on to say, “for just $5, anyone can pledge to feed a senior for a day. MOW serves over 12,000 meals and soups per month thanks to the support of our volunteers as well as public and private funding.”
We hope to see the whole island dressed in orange! Individuals, schools, companies and organizations alike can take part by coordinating a Seniors Rock Dress Down Day at their place of business or organization and coordinate a donation or purchase Meals on Wheels Ribbons ($3) a Wristbands ($2) or ‘Seniors Rock’ T-Shirts ($15). To place an order, register a Seniors Rock day or for more information, contact MOW at 769-1947 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
