December Newsletter

We’ve all heard the saying, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” With all the wonderful things Meals on Wheels has planned for December, the month is certain to fly by!

To kick off the month, don’t forget that your voice matters and we want to hear from you. Please return completed client surveys by December 1, if you haven’t already done so. Surveys can be mailed to the Meals on Wheels office, given to a delivery driver for home-delivery clients, or submitted in a survey bin at one of our dining sites for congregate diners. Thank you for your feedback!

Speaking of congregate dining, we have two weeks of festive activities planned this month. During the week of December 11, we’ll distribute amazing holiday gift bags at all dining sites thanks to a new partnership with Lutheran Community Services Northwest and their Santa for Seniors program. The following week will be “ugly sweater” attire, so dig through your wardrobe and bust out a sweater for a chance to win a raffle prize.

Of course, the Wish List program is back for our home delivery clients thanks to our loving and dedicated team of “elves”. The MOW elves have been hard at work to fill all the special requests. For clients that chose to participate in the program, Wish List gift bags will be delivered the week of December 18.

And last, but certainly not least, mark your calendars for our traditional holiday menu service, Thursday, December 21.

Wishing all our clients and volunteers warmth and happiness this month.
Carla Martinez
