Meals on Wheels Appeal

"Roger Junkin, U.S.Air Force veteran and Meals on Wheels driver, delivers a meal to Cyrilla Hammers."

Generations’ Meals on Wheels program has acted as a safety net for over 40 years providing basic nutrition and care checks that enable them to remain at home all year and enjoy the holiday season. But we need your help!
•    Nutrition funding has been cut drastically.
•    The elderly population is the largest in history, many living below the poverty level.
•    1 out of 9 people in our community have food insecurities.

You can make a difference, right here, where you live, for your neighbors! Any amount is appreciated and your gift stays here and helps to ensure that no homebound senior has to go on a wait list for meals.

Please mail your tax-deductible donation today to Generations, P.O. Box 314, Vincennes, IN 47591.  Thank you.
