March for Meals

The Meals on Wheels Association of America (MOWAA) has between 800,000 and 1.7 million volunteers, making it known for being the “largest volunteer army in the nation.”[1] This March, the MOWAA celebrates its annual March for Meals campaign, which is all about raising awareness for the problem of senior hunger and encouraging members of every community to get involved.

In order to demonstrate the importance of taking action, on March 21, 2012, mayors and elected officials from all over the country volunteered their time for Mayors for Meals, delivering food to hungry seniors across the nation. (To see who got involved in your area, click here for a up-to-date listening of Mayors for Meals participants.)

Curious about how you can get involved and help put an end to senior hunger in America? Consider donating to the cause, volunteering your time, or simply raising awareness through social media like facebook and twitter.

It’s important to us at SYNERGY HomeCare that you never underestimate your potential to make an impact. We are in the business of bettering the lives of people through genuine in-home care, and because of this we know that there is no such thing as a “small deed”—every bit of help makes a difference and impacts lives.

So, on behalf of hungry seniors everywhere, let’s rise to the occasion and help put an end to hunger in the lives of our beloved seniors. These people who spent their lives improving upon the nation and preparing it for the generations to come deserve our support during their time of need. And for those of you who are a part of the 800,000 to 1.7 million volunteers, thank you for loving those who loved you first.
