Charity Spotlight: Meals on Wheels

service-a-thon-2015-025

“More than  a meal” is the tagline for Meals on Wheels of greater Austin, and could be the start to the tagline for the Regina Mater Service-a-thon.  More than just a day of bidding, baking, and participating in fun crafts for families, the Service-a-thon helps our school raise funds for our material needs, and benefit others in the process. It’s a new way to pay it forward.

Likewise, the Meal Delivery Program is a holistic nutrition program that provides home delivered prepared meals for seniors and other homebound clients throughout the Greater Austin area. This program provides case management services to individuals enrolled in the Meals on Wheels program. Each recipient receives one hot meal per day during the week and may have an option of receiving supplemental frozen meals for the weekend.service-a-thon-2015-073

This is the second year Regina Mater will donate handmade fleece blankets to Meals on Wheels clients.  More than 100 blankets are expected to be completed at the Service-a-thon, and donated to their elderly clients.
