SourcePoint Launches Fundraising Drive to Support Meals on Wheels
PRESS RELEASE—SourcePoint is holding a fundraising campaign in support of the organization’s Meals on Wheels program. Each year, the nonprofit provides about 250,000 meals to older adults in Delaware County. To support the program and the growing need for home-delivered meals, SourcePoint is celebrating that “You Make It Happen!” from March 1 through April 15.
For the past several years, SourcePoint has held a Boxed Lunch Fundraiser in support of Meals on Wheels. Because of the continued challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization opted not to hold the traditional event in 2021.
Instead, SourcePoint invites its supporters to take part in a fundraising drive that coincides with Meals on Wheels America’s national campaign, March for Meals. “You Make It Happen!” thanks the nonprofit organization’s clients, donors, volunteers, and community partners for their continued support, and provides an opportunity to donate to Meals on Wheels.
SourcePoint’s Meals on Wheels program helps meet the nutritional needs of homebound older adults, combats social isolation, and addresses safety hazards.
“From a friendly ‘hello’ and safety check to a volunteer singing ‘Happy Birthday!’ to a client, the fact that SourcePoint delivers more than just a meal is the most beautiful and irreplaceable aspect of the program,” said Julie Zdanowicz, SourcePoint’s development officer.
