Feed a Senior, it’s Easy as Pie! Meals on Wheels Rowan launches first annual pie sale
ROWAN COUNTY, N.C. (WBTV) - Meals on Wheels Rowan is launching the “Feed a Senior, It’s Easy as Pie” Fundraiser beginning October 25th. Purchase Thanksgiving pies to serve at home or give as gifts to support local homebound seniors during this upcoming holiday season.
Pies are fresh-baked by K&W Cafeteria and are ready to serve. Choose from Pecan Pie, German Chocolate Pie, and Sweet Potato Pie. All these delicious options are $20 per pie. If you order five or more pies, they will each come with a gift tag and ribbon, ready for giving as gifts.
Meals on Wheels Rowan delivers meals to over 240 homebound seniors in Rowan County each weekday. Home-delivered meal participants must be at least 60 years old or disabled, homebound, and are unable to prepare their own meals. Meals on Wheels Rowan provides free meals to approximately 90 participants who cannot afford to pay for their meals and partial subsidies to 97% of their participants. The partial subsidies range from 20% to 90% to cover the costs of their meals. Meal costs recently increased 70%, raising the annual meal program cost per participant to $3,000 for one year. Due to increased meal costs, Meals on Wheels Rowan is kicking off their “It’s Easy as Pie” Fundraiser.
Meals on Wheels Board Vice-President, Kevin Pruitt said, “The Feed a Senior, It’s Easy as Pie!” Fundraiser will help support our participants who cannot afford to pay for their meals. Many of our participants rely on Meals on Wheels for nutritious meal delivered by our volunteers Monday-Friday. What better way to support our homebound seniors than buying delicious pies for your Thanksgiving celebration.”
Board President, Tom Robinson added, “this is such an easy way to give back. Celebrate Thanksgiving with a delicious K&W pie and help us continue to deliver meals to homebound seniors in Rowan County. Gift a pie to your family, friend, neighbor, or loved one! Don’t forget that with a purchase of 5 or more pies, each pie will come complete with gift tags and ribbons.”
