Dear friends and neighbors,It has been a long road dealing with the coronavirus pandemic in our personal lives, as a community and at Nourish Meals on Wheels. Over the past 14 months, we at Nourish have spent many hours strategizing ways to keep our staff, volunteers and clients safe while still delivering our vital services to the neighbors that rely on our programs for their nutrition and independence.
We are proud to say – WE MADE IT!
We couldn’t have done it without our generous supporters, caring community members and the incredible dedication of our staff and volunteers. Your efforts made it possible to keep our mission moving forward.
Some collective highlights from the last year include:
- Successfully moved into our new location
- 480 clients never missed a daily meal
- 13,000 bags of supplemental groceries were delivered
- Continued to provide birthday and 12 Days of Giving gifts for each client
- Hosted a COVID-19 pop-up vaccination clinic for our clients, staff and volunteers
- Established a new program to provide a bag of breakfasts each week
Our services and your support provide a loving solution so our neighbors who need a little extra help can remain living independently. Whether it be a daily nutritious meal, a friendly check-in, information for no-cost or low-cost community resources, yard clean-up and more, it is a true pleasure to serve our community. Together, we make a difference. Everyday.
Wishing you blessings and good health,
Diane McClymonds | Executive Director
Ways to Help Nourish our Neighbors in Need
Financial Contributions to Support Ongoing Need
Staff and volunteers remain dedicated to preparing and delivering over 2,500 meals each week. Even with many in our community being vaccinated and more normalcy happening throughout our cities, many of our senior and homebound neighbors are still needing to receive the extra support of five meals a week, our weekend made-fresh, frozen meals and supplemental groceries each month.
You can make such a difference to ensure the most vulnerable in our community are cared for through a financial gift. Donations can be made securely through our website or by mailing a donation to PO Box 3108, Centennial, CO 80161.
Donating Nonperishable Foods
We are always in need of donations for nonperishable food items to share with our neighbors with the most need. While shopping for your family, or from your own home pantry, please think of those we serve and contribute items such as . . . peanut butter, jelly, and canned items like tuna, chicken, soup, chili, stew, or fruit. Packaged dry goods like tuna and chicken helper, crackers, cookies, noodle/rice side dish packets, instant oatmeal, non-sugary cereal and paper products are always appreciated.
Donations can be dropped off at our Nourish headquarters at 92 E Arapahoe Road, at the southeast corner of Broadway and Arapahoe Road, Monday through Friday, between 8:00am – 2:30pm. Call 303-798-7642 for further information.
Sharing Greeting Cards with Seniors
Your family can make cheerful cards or notes to brighten the day of our clients. Download pictures to color or create your own. We have 450 clients, so we need lots! You can drop off your greetings at Nourish when you bring nonperishable items, or mail the cards in a large envelope to Nourish Meals on Wheels, PO Box 3108, Centennial, CO 80161.
Our volunteers Nourish the mind, body and spirit of the older adults and homebound individuals we proudly serve.
