Have you ever wanted to help a worthy cause or become more involved, but weren’t quite sure how to? Now is your perfect opportunity to do just that. Throughout the month of March, our friends and partners at Meals on Wheels, Etc. are inviting corporate and private sponsors to support the well-being of seniors throughout the Central Florida community in the lead up to their annual #MarchForMeals event on Saturday, March 24 at the Sanford Civic Center.
Donate now to DOUBLE your impact! LIMU will match all donations of up to $10,000 during the month of March, and every dollar helps!
Hundreds of seniors rely on Meals on Wheels, Etc. for basic services, including breakfast, lunch and dinner delivered straight to their doorsteps daily. March for Meals is part of a nationwide public awareness campaign to focus community attention on the need to continue funding essential programs for the elderly. By participating in this match challenge, you can help raise these much-needed funds!
Meals on Wheels is a nationwide network of community-based, non-profit programs dedicated to providing seniors in their communities with the support that enables them to remain living in their own homes, where they want to be. LIMU is proud to join forces with this incredible organization and cause that is supporting seniors in need each and every day. This support is typically a nutritious meal, a friendly visit and a quick safety check.
Waiting lists for seniors are building in every state across America. Therefore, the need to protect existing funding and create new funding streams is vital towards helping the program continue to reach and help the people who need it most. Your generous contribution will help take needy seniors off the waiting list for nutritious and delicious meals.
We #MarchForMeals because no senior should be forgotten! 💙

Meals on Wheels serves more than 2.4 million seniors from 60 to 100+ years old each year.
These are our loved-ones, parents, grandparents, veterans and neighbors. Healthy meals are so important for them, but a heartfelt visit from a friendly volunteer is sometimes just as important, and our corporate team is honored and privileged to participate throughout the year as part of our ongoing LIMU Gives charitable initiative. Volunteer opportunities fit within a lunch break of up to an hour and a half and you can invite others to join you as a group.
So, get involved, donate and spread the word! Every contribution counts and helps our beloved seniors.
