When the world went on hold this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, like most organizations, Lake Oswego Meals on Wheels was adversely affected. Our fundraising events provide the sole source of short fall revenue for the meals on wheels program in Lake Oswego and all of our events had to be canceled! What a hardship for this community and the residents who rely on meal deliveries to sustain their independence.  We were so fortunate in that the local wine makers in the Dundee area came to the rescue in a huge way.  These generous wineries donated 72 CASES OF WINE to offer an incentive for local folks to make a donation to Meals on Wheels! With a $500.00 donation supporters would receive a case of wine or a 1/2 case for a $250.00 donation.  The  wine was distributed at the Adult Community Center as people drove into the turn around, opened up their trunk or hatch as volunteers loaded the wine into the car

– NO CONTACT! The pick up days were September 19 and 22, and all of the wine found new and grateful homes! It was an amazing success as people were thrilled to be getting a great gift for their donations which amounted to over $35,000.00! We are not in the end zone yet, but thanks to our local wineries and our generous donors we are well on the way to reach our goals to enable a successful meals on wheels program in Lake Oswego.

LO Academy of Dance Raises $5,657 for LO Meals on Wheels

Sunday May 19, 2019, Lake Oswego Meals on Wheels was very fortunate to again partner with The Lake Oswego Academy of Dance (LOAD) to raise funds to help provide meals for seniors and disabled Lake Oswego residents.

The Lake Oswego Academy of Dance held a performance at the LO Adult Community Center, where their talented young students performed modern, tap, ballet, jazz, and hip hop. Admission to the recital and proceeds from gift-basket raffle tickets raised $5,657 for Lake Oswego Meals on Wheels. 

We are truly grateful to all who attended and for an outpouring of valuable donations from local businesses and individuals that helped create the beautiful gift baskets used as raffle prizes.

Thanks go out to LOMOW Advisory Board event chair Nancy Jones and her volunteers, as well as to the very talented LOAD staff, headed by Beckie Ware.

The 5th Annual Oliphant Golf Tournament, held on June 29 of this year, is another success story for the legacy of Doug Oliphant.

Nearly 100 golfers, consisting of LO residents and employees of many local businesses, participated in the tournament. Major golf equipment manufacturers were also on hand to demonstrate their latest gear.

The event, which was held at the Lake Oswego Public Golf Course, is named after Doug Oliphant who dedicated his life to community service in Lake Oswego. Doug was a direct descendant of John Course Trullinger who purchased the original town site of Oswego. See for more information.

Thank you Lake Oswego Oliphant Hoover Community Charities for your continued support of Lake Oswego Meals on Wheels.
