FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE

ARROW2FUNDRAISING CHALLENGE

Every day, we will continue on our mission. But the reality is, the recession is affecting us, too. Federal and state funding is down. Expenses–especially gas and food prices–are skyrocketing. And when you factor in the costs of a rapidly aging population,  the situation becomes even more critical. That’s why it’s absolutely essential that you join us in the fight against senior hunger. Please donate today!

A righteous cause

100% of your donation goes directly to providing meals and support services to our homebound seniors. Here‘s the breakdown:

  • 60% goes to labor. Our dedicated, passionate team at Meals on Wheels of Ocean County is working every day in the kitchen, on the roads, and in our community. Your donation ensures that we have enough people to cook the food, deliver the meals, and provide the counseling our seniors deserve.
  • 40% goes to expenses. You think you pay a lot for gas? You should see our bill. In 2011, we spent over $100,000 on gas alone! Not to mention food costs, truck service, facility maintenance, etc. Nobody ever said feeding every hungry senior would be easy, or cheap.

The Private Sector at its best

Meals on Wheels of Ocean County is not a federally funded government program with endless resources. We’re just hardworking men and women with a passion for helping our friends and neighbors.

Think of us as an example of the best of the private sector. We do more, feed more, and help more, with less. We operate at a fraction of the cost of what we’d be if we were a government-run program.

Meals on Wheels is not an entitlement program! If our funds run out, the program ends. Please make sure that doesn’t happen. Donate today!

Meals on Wheels of Ocean County is a registered 501(c)3 charity. Financial gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed under IRS regulations.

Please Note: We appreciate your donation. Please keep in mind when donating it costs approximately $10.00 to provide one meal.
