Congratulations! The Charlotte News helped Age Well provide 170 Meals on Wheels. We appreciate this support.
Because of the readers’ generosity, our clients can rely on the daily nutritious meal, volunteer visit and daily safety check. Age Well is grateful to everyone who donated to support Meals on Wheels in Charlotte. Last year, Age Well served 187 Charlotte residents.
This support comes at a time when Age Well is facing unprecedented numbers of aging Vermonters needing meal deliveries and the support that accompanies Meals on Wheels. Thank you for helping us to continue to reach thousands in need, avoid waitlists and continue to deliver a vital lifeline to those most at risk.
Meals on Wheels can serve one person for an entire year for about the same cost as one day in a hospital or 10 days in a nursing home. Meals on Wheels not only helps our aging neighbors thrive, but also relies on collaboration from our community partners, volunteers and businesses to meet the ever-growing need, ensuring that no older Vermonter is left behind.
To learn more about how Age Well supports older Vermonters, we invite you to visit agewellvt.org or call the helpline at 800-642-5119.
