For a number of years, I’ve had the privilege of serving on the Board of Directors for Citymeals on Wheels, a nonprofit which provides 18,000 homebound elderly New Yorkers with nutritious meals on weekends, holidays and in emergencies.
Last week I was honored to join Beth Shapiro, Executive Director of Citymeals on Wheels and Nanda Anand, a fellow CMOW Board Member, in delivering a nutritious meal to Zoila A. in Manhattan.
There are many ways that you can help. Any time of year is a good time for a workplace team to volunteer – teams from ABC Disney, Bank of America, Bloomberg, Bloomingdales, CBS, Mitsui and Wells Fargo regularly help with meal preparation and delivery. And with the holidays just around the corner, now is an especially good time to contribute to CMOW via donation or to purchase a holiday card. Each card purchased provides one meal for an elderly recipient. For more information on Citymeals, please contact: Citymeals on Wheels
