    CHARLES SCHWAB'S SEASON OF GIVING

    At Charles Schwab, our spirit of service is driven by our people. During our annual Season of Giving, we come together to make the holidays brighter for those in need.

    For the second year in a row, we’re proud to be partnering with Meals on Wheels America—the leadership organization supporting the more than 5,000 community-based programs across the country dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. Even before the pandemic, staff and volunteers served 223 million meals to 2.4 million seniors. And for those receiving home-delivered meals, 58% of them live alone—making Meals on Wheels a welcome social visit.

    Donate now and help us reach our fundraising goal of $150,000. Together, we can provide meals to even more seniors in need and give them the comfort of knowing we care.

    Seniors are valued members of society, and it's an honor for us to support them this holiday season. Help us ensure they receive a nutritious meal and a friendly chat!

    WHY MEALS ON WHEELS

    Schwab 4 - Season of Giving 2021

    2021 has been another tumultuous year. In the wake of vaccines and slow return to routines, millions of seniors still rely on us to provide the support they need to continue to living healthy and independently at home.

    As of July this year, Meals on Wheels programs were still serving 44% more seniors and delivering 57% more meals than pre-pandemic levels. Projections predict that the number of seniors who need our support will double by 2060 and the complexities between hunger, isolation and the interrelated issues that erode health, are increasingly imperative to solve.

    Together, we can ensure that every senior who needs our help will receive a daily nutritious meal, social visit and safety check. With your help, we can continue to do whatever it takes to ensure Meals on Wheels remains the solution that’s fully able to support our nation’s seniors – today, tomorrow and for many decades to come.

    Schwab Resources for Seniors

    In the U.S. alone, fraud costs seniors upwards of $2.9 billion annually. At Schwab, we advocate for senior and vulnerable investors to help them achieve and maintain financial security. Don’t let you or your loved ones fall victim to financial elder abuse. Take practical steps to guard against fraud today.
