Holiday Build-A-Bag Program

Help us provide a gift bag of greatly needed items for our older, homebound and disabled neighbors this holiday! Everyone likes to receive a surprise gift, often your gift is the only one our homebound neighbors will receive.

Each year our community comes together to provide 1,350-holiday gift bags to every homebound individual receiving Meals on Wheels. In advance of the holidays, we work to collect some basic necessities that we package and deliver in time for the holiday.

It’s easy to participate! Heres How:
