Will YOU Join Us in the Fight Against Hunger?
Wesley provides essential services to 3,000 seniors in the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati area with a mission to Keep Seniors in their Home Independently as Long as Possible and also participates in the yearly national March for Meals campaign. It is designed to generate public awareness about senior hunger and isolation and to celebrate the invaluable services provided by the Meals on Wheels programs – both home delivered and congregate – in virtually every community across the country. Given the exemplary public-private partnership Meals on Wheels embodies, this annual campaign is also intended to showcase the successes of the Older Americans Act, help recruit new volunteers from our community and to increase fundraising from local businesses and supporters.
