Now an annual event during the month of October, Mountain Park New Seasons Market shoppers were given the opportunity to donate to Lake Oswego Meals on Wheels as they checked out. And their record-breaking generosity yielded over $9700 for our local meals program.
Volunteers were located at each of the store entrances greeting customers, distributing LO Meals on Wheels information cards, and explaining the program. Over 35 volunteers included Meals on Wheels Board members, friends, and family; MOW drivers; LO Adult Community Center staff; City Council members; LO Rotary Club members; and LO Park and Rec employees.
One-hundred percent of the funds donated go directly to support the Lake Oswego Meals on Wheels home-delivered and dine-in meals for senior, disabled, and home-bound residents of Lake Oswego.
Special thanks go out to Cece Harris, New Seasons’ Community Outreach Coordinator for handling this event along with Malcolm Mathes, Meals on Wheels board member and event chair, the enthusiastic store managers and staff at New Seasons, and the many volunteer greeters.
