    AMERICA'S SENIORS NEED YOU

    CHANGING LIVES ONE SNUGGLE AT A TIME

    One in four seniors lives alone and, for many of them, their pet is their closest companion and one of their only sources of consistent comfort. Pets play a very important role in the life of a homebound older adult, providing social connection and enhancing their physical and mental health and well-being.

    Caring for pets like Winston takes a physical and financial toll on elderly adults who live alone. Feeding, grooming and caring for them can be challenging with limited money and mobility. In fact, 80% of clients receiving pet assistance say that Meals on Wheels has made it possible for them to keep their loving companion, according to our latest research with partner PetSmart Charities.

    That’s why it’s so important that Meals on Wheels America supports local programs to help feed, groom and even provide veterinary care to the pets of seniors in need.

    KEEPING SENIORS SAFE AMID COVID-19

    Make Good Go Further

    PROGRAMS SERVING MORE MEALS THAN EVER BEFORE TO KEEP UP WITH DEMAND

    During the pandemic, we sent $31.3 million directly to the frontlines. That’s more than 1,000 grants to support 628 local communities. Our impact spanned the nation and went into the communities that needed it most. Thanks to our generous donors, we’ve been able to provide healthy meals, social contact and a watchful eye for millions of seniors. But, our work has just begun. We still need to safely serve seniors in need through the end of the pandemic and long into the future.

    OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE

    SCALING THE SAFETY NET FOR SENIORS

    As we chart a way out of the COVID-19 crisis and towards a more stable future, we lead the national network of local programs determined to combat senior isolation and hunger. This success requires financial sustainability, so we’ve launched the Go Further Fund. This fund will directly help scale our vital lifeline for older adults by supporting communities in crisis, building capacity and driving innovation to enable our nation will tackle these issues head-on.

    Give to the Meals on Wheels Go Further Fund to ensure local communities have what they need to continue to deliver a vital lifeline to our most at-risk Americans.
