Community organizations fill a need for Meals On Wheels

During this difficult time, so many organizations and people have stepped up to help the clients of Meals on Wheels (MOW.) First off, the Community Presbyterian Church through Pastor Dawn Mayes partnered with them to make sure their clients had toilet paper, the number one item asked for during this pandemic. Wiseguy Barbershop and Barbara Caruso donated hand sanitizers for MOW drivers to use while delivering meals. Rotonda West Mask Makers, spearheaded by Ellyn Nadeau, provided Meals on Wheels with 50 masks for delivery teams to use. Publix of Cape Haze donates bread weekly for their clients and Abbe Donuts drops off treats for the clients and volunteers. Howard’s Restaurant and Bob Evans of Port Charlotte donated produce and other food items that went directly to the clients and help to cut the cost of meals during the month. The Democratic Club of Englewood gave a financial donation to Meals on Wheels to help cover the cost of clients unable to pay for their meals during this time. Dollar General on N. Indiana Avenue, along with donations by customers, donates toilet paper and other supplies needed by their clients. Lastly, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation that chose Meals on Wheels as one of their emergency grant recipients for a $5,000 grant as they begin the process of contracting for a new commercial freezer/refrigerator since the present one is being held together by a song, dance, and prayer. Englewood Meals on Wheels is “more than just delivering meals” and they are very thankful for all those who support us!
