Our 11th Annual Theater night was sold out

Highlights of the evening were many, and included our pre-show reception where guests enjoyed a never ending selection of delectable appetizers, a celebratory moment when our Executive Director Diane McClymonds toasted retiring board member Larry Parberry for his many years of service, our pre-show video, and an entertaining and comedic performance of Hairspray.

Funds raised from the event will go directly towards our meal delivery program, enriching the lives of hundreds of seniors and homebound neighbors in South Metro Denver. We especially want to thank Subaru of America, our Diamond Title Sponsor, as well as the generous support of our corporate and food sponsors, raffle prize donors, and all who attended for making this evening such a success.

Meals on Wheels has received much attention since the White House budget proposed cuts to Community Development Block Grant funding. This is money the federal government gives states to disperse at their discretion.

Each Meals on Wheels program across the country is run independently. Many rely on federal funding, which includes CDBG funding as well as Older Americans Act money. The OAA provides 35 percent of the total funding for Meals on Wheels programs nationally and is part of the Department of Health and Human Services budget, which has not yet been released.

“Thank you for the kindness and support you shared with my father Tony. As his health declined his interactions with other people decreased. But the volunteers brought him companionship and joy. He may not have said it, but he was grateful for your organization and volunteers. Thank you for being so good to him.”
