It’s time to colour the community orange to show support to our seniors through the annual Meals on Wheels (MOW) SENIORS ROCK Dress Down Day! This year, scores of companies, schools and individuals are joining event sponsor Butterfield Cayman, in supporting the MOW mission to end senior hunger. This is also a day to celebrate and show our elderly that SENIORS ROCK, and that they are important to us as a community. Join us in our fight to end senior hunger in the Cayman Islands by purchasing official Meals on Wheels merchandise, there are polos, t-shirts, shopping bags and, umbrella; or you can “rock your orange” attire and make a donation to participate in our island wide Seniors Rock Dress Down Day on Friday, 24th September.

Every weekday, over 130 Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver nutritious meals and hearty soups, with a warm smile to over 315 seniors, homebound and disabled persons. Meals are provided free of charge to these clients, this is made possible through the generosity of companies, schools, service clubs and individuals alike. MOW General Manager, Jennifer West said that “This Seniors Rock event is critical to our ongoing services to the community due to the increased costs in food along with an ever increasing list of new referrals, we need to raise at least $33,000 to cover the cost of meals for one month. As people consider their donations for Seniors Rock, for the cost of the cup of coffee, you can feed a senior for a day! Sponsor a Senior by pledging to provide meals, at just $5 a day, anyone can help. For just $25 you can feed a senior for one week, or $125 for a month, or $1,300 for an entire year.

MOW Board Chairman, Mr Rob Imparato states, “We hope to see the whole island coloured in orange this Friday as the community rallies to support Meals on Wheels!”

Merchandise is selling out so be sure to place your orders today! Official 2021 ‘Seniors Rock’ T-Shirts ($15), Orange Shopping Tote ($5), Wristbands ($2).
