Wine Event-A Success Story

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.
