Caledon Meals on Wheels Needs Your Help!

Caledon Meals on Wheels Needs Your Help!

Bolton, ON- July 31, 2017

Caledon Meals on Wheels (CMOW) is reaching out to the community for help with their 2017 “Wheels for Meals” Lottery.

“This is our main fundraiser for 2017, and will make up a significant portion of our budget, with the proceeds going to fund critical programs and services in our communities” said CMOW Executive Director Christine Sevigny. “Poor weather and low attendance at events has hampered our efforts to sell tickets and with an August 31st lottery deadline we are at crunch time and need help.”

Caledon Meals on Wheels is a community volunteer-driven organization providing meals, services, and social programs to residents living in the Town of Caledon, Orangeville, and surrounding areas that are not covered by other organizations. In 2017 we will once again deliver over 25,000 meals, facilitate over 16,000 safety checks and friendly visits, and run 12 health and wellness programs for seniors every week and 2 monthly card party luncheons.

The “Wheels for Meals” lottery has an impressive $57,000 prize package featuring:

2017 Ford F150 Truck loaded with $1,500 worth of Camping Gear and two Bicycles

Tickets are $20.00 each or 3 for $50.00 and with only 8,000 printed the odds are great!

“Our organization is so fortunate to have extraordinary staff, volunteers and corporate partners who have really stepped up to champion this initiative” said CMOW Board Chair Pina Marino. “Now we need to ask the greater community to help us get to the finish line.”
