While the Christmas season is a time to be with family and loved ones, this time of the year can be especially lonely for those who live by themselves, have no family in town, and have health issues preventing them from leaving the house. It can be isolating, lonely, and lack a joyful feeling. At Edmonton Meals on Wheels, we try to make the holidays special for our clients by delivering Christmas gifts along with a festive, holiday meal. It’s through our annual holiday gift drive, that we’re able to brighten the lives of our clients, thanks to the generosity of the community. We are asking you to help make a difference in the lives of local seniors, by donating to our annual Holiday Gift Drive.
Edmonton Meals on Wheels is a non-profit organization that provides home-delivered meal services to a diverse mix of people, with the help of dedicated volunteers. Last year, we prepared, packaged and delivered over 545,000 meal items to clients around the city. Our volunteers drove almost 131,000 kilometres around Edmonton delivering those meals to our clients. The clients we serve are most often the frail, housebound person, with over 77 percent of our clients living alone.
Your support will truly be appreciated as it directly impacts our clients. We thank you for your thoughtful consideration and hope you are able to support us this holiday season.
