Knoxville Community--The Mobile Meals Program Needs Your Help!

I received the following from a social worker friend and thought that those of you living in the Knoxville community might want to help:

Dear Knoxville Community,
In a recent visit Barbara Monty at the CAC/Office on Aging she revealed that there is presently a WAITING LIST for Mobile Meals.
This means there are homebound elders in our community who are hungry and in need of our help.
I have always believed that supporting the Mobile Meals Program provides a huge “BANG” for your buck, as 100% of monies donated go directly to providing meals for folks. No fluff, no parties, no t-shirts, no mega salaries or hoards of employees.
Just basic food. Delivered by an army of dedicated volunteers.
So many in our network focus on long term care in assisted living and nursing home facilities, and may forget about the huge population of elders who are NOT receiving care in such facilities. They depend on Mobile Meals in order to remain at home. Please help.

Just $65 provides Mobile Meals
(Monday through Friday)
for one senior citizen in Knoxville or Knox County for an entire month.
When you give $780, you provide Mobile Meals for a year! 

One hundred percent !
of every dollar
you give goes directly to providing
meals for Knox County seniors!!!!!

Give a lil…give a lot!
Honor a loved one, or a boss, an employee or a friend! Honor a business! A pet!
Why not Make a donation for a truly loving valentine “statement”?
