Are you wanting to find fun and exciting ways to engage your social circles and support Edmonton Meals on Wheels? Look no further! Hosting a fundraiser on behalf of EMOW is a fun and engaging way to support our mission to provide nutritious meals and related programs which promote health, well-being and independence for our clients.
Community-led fundraising events ensure we are successful in meeting our goal. Whether it's a one day donation drive campaign, theme day at the office, or raffle, the possibilities are endless when it comes to what you can do to make a difference. Simply download and read our Community Fundraising Toolkit, fill it out, and send it back to us. We will gladly help brainstorm unique ways for you to support our programs and clients and how to spread the word!
Here are some ideas to get you started:
66% of our clients are over the age of 70. Many of which are homebound due to illness, immobility, or low-income. Funds ensure they receive the support they need.
The number of clients receiving subsidy in 2020 increased by 70%. Support from funds will relieve the anxiety felt by seniors who are unsure how they will feed themselves.
Provide critical information and resources for those without access to the internet or other means of finding such.
Funding our Connections Caller Program, and supplying human connection for those who see no one other than the EMOW volunteer who delivers their meal.
