Before COVID-19, seniors living alone visited with friends at a local senior center enjoying a hot, nutritious meal and socialization. Those less active had daily visits, kind, encouraging words, and a safety and nutrition check-in by a qualified meals driver.
Since COVID-19, hundreds of seniors are alone with no human contact, no hot meal – only a packet of five meals dropped at their door to last a week.
For Community Action Program of Belknap-Merrimack Counties and Strafford County Meals on Wheels programs, COVID-19 has squashed fundraising events for these agencies, which could result in reduced meals for seniors, putting them at an even higher safety risk.
Join us, alongside NH Federal Credit Union, in raising money for continued Meals on Wheels services to seniors in NH. NHFCU will double down on ‘Feed The Need’ by matching your contribution!
Your donation will ‘Feed The Need’ for at risk seniors in Merrimack, Belknap, and Strafford Counties who will continue to hear that knock on the door and a friendly voice saying, “Meals on wheels is here!”
While the climate is uncertain, we know there will be more need as we enter the fall and winter months, so help us ‘Feed The Need’ to ensure these important services continue for your elderly friends and neighbors.
