Groups and Organizations
Groups can help by sponsoring teams of volunteers to deliver meals and by donating towards the cost of providing the service.
Unfortunately, only a very small number of our meal recipients are able to pay for their meals. It is up to us to raise the funds so they do not go hungry. The need is growing, but the funds are shrinking. Your gift will go far to ensure that no one goes to bed hungry.
Support Meals on Wheel services by:
- Giving a tax-deductible gift,
- Making a memorial contribution in memory of a loved one, or
- Sending a gift in honor of a friend or relative
- Tell friends and organizations about Meals on Wheels services and needs.
- Inform those who may need the services of Meal on Wheels.
Meals on Wheels of the Greater Lynchburg Area has been providing healthy meals, friendly smiles, and warm reassurance to the local homebound community since 1974.
Meals are delivered mid-day, Monday through Friday including holidays. Volunteers deliver the meals in their own cars at their own expense, which helps keep the cost of meals low. Meals on Wheels serve people who live in the city of Lynchburg and the surrounding areas of Madison Heights, Amherst County, Campbell County, and Bedford County.
