TLC is Moving!
TLC Meals on Wheels must move. Our home for the past decade in the Ames facility owned by Littleton Public Schools, is being torn down and a new elementary school will be built on the land. There is no luxury of time; we have to vacate no later than December 20, 2019 while continuing to provide the vital services our community relies on.
TLC Meals on Wheels has committed to purchase a building at the intersection of South Broadway & Arapahoe Road in Littleton for their new facility. They are leasing the space while they raise the funds to buy the property and make necessary renovations and repairs. The non-profit expects to take occupancy of the former Las Delicias restaurant later this year.
The anticipated costs to purchase the building along with renovations, moving and updating our kitchen equipment is $2 million.
In our new facility – a repurposed restaurant at South Broadway and Arapahoe Road – we will relocate our existing commercial kitchen equipment, have ample room for meal prep and packaging, as well as office and meeting space. The 6800 square foot location also offers room for future growth and new programs as the community ages and need for our service increases.
We will be more central to our delivery area, with easier access for staff, volunteers and the public.
We are fortunate to have a team of architects, a kitchen designer and a group of sub-contractors who are donating their services. We are however, still searching for a general contractor.
You can invest in the community by giving today – or call us if you are interested in making a pledge over time.
