Good Neighbor program sponsors meals for those in need

The Lakewood Meals on Wheels Good Neighbor Sponsorship program gives individuals and businesses a way to help provide meals to their homebound neighbors in greatest need.

Meals on Wheels offers services to all clients regardless of income or ability to pay. The annual donations of Good Neighbor Sponsors specifically help subsidize free or reduced-cost meals for those low-income Lakewood neighbors who can’t afford the cost.

When you become a Good Neighbor Sponsor, your annual contribution will provide the following number of meals for a homebound neighbor:

$70/year = 10 meals
$140/year = 20 meals
$355/year = 50 meals
$700/year = 100 meals
$1,400/year = 200 meals
$2,100/year = 300 meals

Donors receive a recognition certificate for their participation.

Lakewood Meals on Wheels is a non-profit, community agency supported by many private contributors. Contributions are tax deductible and may be made online at www.lakewoodcity.org/DonateMOW or by mail to Lakewood Meals on Wheels, 5510 Clark Ave., Lakewood CA 90712.
