March for Meals 2017 is bigger and better than ever!

March for Meals 2017 is bigger and better than ever!

Bolton, ON –March 16, 2017 – Today marks the kick off of Caledon Meals on Wheels’ March for Meals campaign. The month-long event designed to generate public awareness about senior nutrition and to celebrate the invaluable services provided by Meals on Wheels across Caledon and Orangeville. Our first event of the month was off to a great start.

Joining our regular volunteer driver Greg from MARS, was our MP David Tilson. As a strong advocate for seniors, Mr. Tilson has been joining our March for Meals campaign for many years.

Returning for the third year in a row, Shannon Turnbull from Turnbull Financial – The Mortgage Centre is a valued sponsor of March for Meals. Ms Turnbull made a $1000 donation to Meals on Wheels for the privilege to deliver meals with Mayor Thompson.

When asked why she keeps returning to March for Meals, Ms Turnbull shared the following: “I have participated in delivering for Meals on Wheels in March for this event because I truly believe that no senior should be left behind. Unfortunately, I lost my grandmother in 2016 and I just cannot say enough about the moments when my grandmother had contact with another caregiver at any point in her day. It is truly a joy to make a meal recipient smile in a day. Knowing this is a service available today, is reassuring and I support it fully and without it these seniors would be lost.”

March for Meals 2017 welcomes new guests and sponsors this year and will be delivering in Orangeville on March 20th and again on March 22nd in Caledon. Stay tuned for more pictures and news about March for Meals. #MarchforMeals
