On Thursday, March 12th, the Riverside Police Department in force joined RMOW in a ride-a-long Riverside Meals on Wheels style! Take a look...
And then on Monday, March 16th, our Mayor, all seven Council Members, Interim City Manager, and Riverside Meals on Wheels board members were chauffeured by Lexus of Riverside, Dutton Motors, Toyota of Riverside and Raceway Ford delivering meals in celebration of March for Meals. Each dignitary took a separate route hitting every neighborhood in Riverside ~ because seniors reside in all Wards!Riverside Meals on Wheels was presented with a Proclamation declaring the month of March as “March for Meals.” Executive Director, Janice Bielman, and Director of Operations, Amanda Blow also traveled the routes as part of the celebration.Thank you Mayor, council members, auto dealers, MOW Board Members and especially our volunteers for helping to make the day so much fun!!!
The month of March mobilizes hundreds of local Meals on Wheels programs across the country to reach out to their communities and build the support that will sustain them all year long. Meals on Wheels programs collectively serve a nutritious meal, a warm smile and the safety check that keep over 2.5 million seniors a year healthy and living in their own homes. This effort is a dynamic and effective partnership between the national network of local Meals on Wheels programs and the businesses, organizations, governments and volunteers who contribute so generously in their communities. Help us shore up the resources needed to make 2015 a year we can all be proud of. The 13th annual March for Meals campaign is led by the Meals on Wheels Association of America and gives us all an opportunity to support our nation’s seniors in a variety of ways to make our communities stronger and healthier. So choose what’s right for you. And, in doing so, know that your contribution will make a difference to, and touch the hearts of, your courageous aging neighbors.
