Support AMOW at Two Upcoming Events
Alamedans have two opportunities — one tonight, and one next month — to support Alameda Meals on Wheels’ (AMOW) efforts. AMOW is a locally-funded, seven-day-a-week program that has been delivering hot, nourishing meals to Alameda residents since 1973.
Each day, holidays included, volunteers deliver a mid-day meal to more than 140 Alameda residents of all ages who need assistance —whether due to recent surgery or hospitalization, because they aren’t able to get out to grocery shop, or because they can’t cook their own meals. Subscribers pay on a sliding-fee scale, based upon their ability.
Dine & Donate
A “Dine & Donate” fundraising event sponsored by East Ocean Seafood Restaurant, takes place tonight, Thursday, Feb. 20. Dine any time between 5 and 9 p.m., and the restaurant will donate 15 percent of its dine-in sales. Enjoy a seafood dinner while helping those in need.
East Ocean is located at 1713 Webster St. For more information, call 865-3381.
Community Champions Week
The month of March will mobilize hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs across the country to reach out to their communities and build the support that will enable programs to serve America’s seniors all year long.
The 18th annual March for Meals campaign gives businesses, organizations, elected officials and neighbors who contribute in their communities an opportunity to support homebound seniors in a variety of ways. Community Champions Week gives community members a chance to see how Meals on Wheels delivers more than just a meal.
To join AMOW for Champions Week March 16 through 20, and deliver a meal alongside an experienced volunteer, contact Rosemary Reilly at email@example.com or call 865-6131.
