March for Meals

With Your Help, We've Raised Over $131,000 for Meals on Wheels . . .  

TO HELP END SENIOR HUNGER AND ISOLATION IN OUR COMMUNITY!

The 2017 March for Meals campaign is one for the records. Thanks to your generosity, we far surpassed our goal of raising $60,000 for the Missoula Meals on Wheels program, which serves older adults and people with disabilities in Missoula County. What's more, the donations are still coming in!

Because of support from you, we provide over 100,000 meals to more than 800 individuals we serve annually. To maintain this level of service, we must raise $100,000 from the community each year. Thanks to your generosity during March for Meals, we are able to serve those in need promptly, often the day after we get the call.

By raising donations in person, through our Crowdfunding option, participating in community events like Jeans Day, becoming a Community Champion and through generous business sponsorships, you've demonstrated a magnitude of support for this critical program. In Seeley Lake, a special community campaign involved students, community members and businesses to raise more than $2,000 for their local program!
