Delivering Meals, Nurturing Hearts and Nourishing Homebound Seniors
Continue to raise awareness and funds to serve every homebound senior in the Salinas Valley who needs healthy meals. We provide pet meals to our clients, reading glasses and adult diapers. Monterey County Weekly is distributed to our clients. We'll continue to work with Arts Council to have a local musician accompany a volunteer on a delivery route to provide a live "sidewalk serenade" to our clients. We launched our monthly SOCOS (South County Senior Social) in Soledad last year and have expanded to Gonzales, King City and Castroville. These monthly socials provide an opportunity for seniors to socialize with their peers, receive a complimentary lunch from a local restaurant, hear live music, receive valuable information from a variety of senior service providers such as Alliance on Aging, Legal Services for Seniors, Blue Zones, Red Cross, ITN Monterey County and MST.
Meals on Wheels of the Salinas Valley is God sent. I thank you for the birthday card and gifts you sent me for my 83rd birthday. You made my day. We appreciate all you do for all of us seniors. Being a senior is tough now; now I understand all the things Mom told us as we were growing up.
