Ever since her husband died, Dawn has been struggling to make ends meet on a fixed income. Living alone, she gets pretty lonely, a situation that is made even harder because she is blind and it is difficult to get around the house.

Now, with the pandemic in full force, she is even more isolated from friends and the places she knows. Her loneliness has reached a painful level this holiday season.

When her husband was alive, they were already struggling to get by. But with his passing, the pension that helped them get by was taken away. That’s when Dawn became one of millions of seniors living below the poverty line.

You can help struggling seniors like Dawn across the country with a gift today.

She did her best to scrape by on an income of $600 per month to cover rent, utilities and food. But it was nowhere near enough to pay for the food and supplies that she needed to live.

Thankfully, a blessing came along to make Dawn’s life better: Meals on Wheels. Without her local program, Dawn wouldn’t know when she might eat next.

“Sometimes that is the only meal I eat during the day,” Dawn says.

Your support will help ensure that millions of America’s seniors, living in isolation and feeling lonely this holiday season, receive the food and care they need to survive.
