Meals on Wheels Volunteers of all ages collected donations from supporters across Grand Cayman

 

It’s that time of the year again! Time to empty those coin jar, piggy bank and coin trays to help raise funds to support our seniors. Every penny helps, so whether your donations jangles or folds, know that you will be making a difference in the life of a senior in need! The 6th annual Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels (MOW) Change for Change Coin Drive will have over 300 volunteers stationed around Grand Cayman on Friday and Saturday, January 28th & 29th collecting coin, cash and donations of any amount for Meals on Wheels. Last year’s Coin Drive was a record breaking one, after unfortunately having to cancel the 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the ongoing challenges MOW continues to provide daily hot meals to those in need across Grand Cayman. Jennifer West, General Manager for MOW stated that “We are hoping to raise enough funds to provide over 7,040 nutritious hot meals to seniors and other vulnerable members of our community. This is the number of meals served each month by MOW!” West encourages everyone to gather support this event generously, “Loose change may not seem like it could make much of a difference, but when the community pulls together it all adds up to make a huge difference to help those who need us most”.

We are still looking for volunteer to cover 2-hours collect donations to benefit our seniors. Volunteers of all ages have always supported this fundraiser and we look forward to full community support once again to make it a success to meet our goal.” Collection locations include: Credit Union, Butterfield (Governors Square and Butterfield Place), Galleria Plaza, all Fosters Supermarkets, Cayman National (Elgin Avenue), Rubis AA (Red Bay), Atlantic Department Store, Atlantic Kids, Kirk Home Centre, Hurley’s Supermarket, Camana Bay (Paseo), A.L. Thompsons, Kirk Market, Café del Sol (Marquee Plaza) and West Shore Plaza.

Thanks to our sponsor Davenport Development, each volunteer will be provided with a volunteer shirt, collection bucket and face mask. Join Davenport & Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels, in the fight to end senior hunger in the Cayman Islands!
