Meals on Wheels America News: You are there for Carl

Clubs and Organizations

May 12, 2021

Thanks to you, Meals on Wheels was there for Carl when he needed it most, and continues to be a lifeline every day.

Carl was hospitalized twice last year – once for a cardiac problem and once again for pneumonia.

And 2020 was a frightening year for those with heart and respiratory issues.

To make matters worse, his mobility – which is already limited by the illness-related loss of his driver’s license a few years back – was further restricted when the pandemic made getting around even more difficult. As a result, he’s spent more time alone than ever before.

“It’s just been a life of staying home more,” he says of his time during the last year. “A lot more than I would on a normal basis. I don’t have anybody here besides myself.”

How Connection Saves Lives

That’s when he made the call and began to receive services from his local Meals on Wheels program – and he’s been very, very happy with his experience.

Because of your continued support, Meals on Wheels is able to deliver nutritious food and life-saving connection to seniors like Carl.

Most meaningful of all? His Meals on Wheels volunteer who checks in on him and cares about his health and well-being.

“There are people out there who do care about the needy and homebound.”

Another gift supports the nutritious food and human connection that saves lives. Donate again to deliver for America’s seniors.
