November 2020 SMMOW Newsletter
SMMOW is promoting two fundraisers this Fall.
During the time of COVID and social distancing, SMMOW has seen an increase in clients and other changes with our organization and our world that make this year's fundraisers even more critical.
We're primarily promoting our Virtual Walk to End Hunger Team's fundraiser because there's a possibility for a $5000 matching grant. There are also fun events on Thanksgiving morning that you can join on line, including something for kids!
Give to the Max is also a Fall fundraiser for SMMOW. You can find both of these fundraisers by clicking here for our DONATE page on this website. You will find links for donating online.
Both fundraisers have already started so you can donate now. We appreciate both large and mall donations equally.

We always need more drivers. Even pre-COVID, our cadre of church drivers was aging and we were increasingly relying on community volunteers.
Post-COVID, we've seen an increase of clients while some of our veteran drivers are at high risk and no longer deliver.
If you are already connected to an organization that is a member of SMMOW, contact your Meals on Wheels Coordinator about volunteering or email us.
If you belong to a church that is not currently a member of SMMOW, email us about becoming a member.
If you belong to a community organization that would like to become a member of SMMOW, email us about becoming a member and adding your organization to our driving rotation.
