This year, many of us have experienced some unprecedented circumstances as a result of COVID-19. Being mostly homebound has been challenging, but some of us are very lucky to still be able to venture out for necessities, food, and work. However, this is not the case for many elderly and disabled individuals who need extra assistance to get what they need in order to survive. This is why we here at Kilgro & Associates Inc. value the work done by Meals on Wheels right here in Decatur and are excited to support them with your help!
Local Meals on Wheels programs are on the front lines every day, focused on doing all they can to keep older Americans safe and nourished in communities across the country. In fact, a new survey conducted by Meals on Wheels America reveals that programs are now serving an average of 47% more seniors than they were on March 1, when concerns over COVID-19 and social distancing measures began taking hold. The pulse survey also found that 97% of local Meals on Wheels programs have seen costs rise, particularly due to the need to acquire safety supplies and deliver more meals to each senior amid uncertainty.
Though this is scary to acknowledge, there is a way for us to give back to our community and ensure that everyone is well-fed and taken care of. When you recommend someone to us for a quote, we offer to donate $20 on your behalf. And yes, that is for EACH friend you send us. How many do you have? Do the math!
