For the second year in a row, GSB will support the fundraising efforts of new walkers by matching their dollars raised for the 2019 Meals on Wheels Walkathon on Saturday, April 27, from 8:30 to 11 a.m., at LifePath, 101 Munson Street in Greenfield, Mass. This is GSB’s 24th year of supporting Meals on Wheels!
“Last year the Walkathon saw close to 70 walkers join the effort who hadn’t participated in the previous year. If you’ve been thinking of joining the LifePath Meals on Wheels Walkathon for the first time, let us match your efforts - up to $7,000,” says GSB President and CEO John Howland. “We want to double your gift and create impact for elders who need the support of Meals on Wheels.”
“LifePath’s Meals on Wheels program provides many of the elders in our community with a nutritious hot meal delivered to their homes,” says Howland. “This important program ensures these important members of our community have daily contact and a ‘wellness check’ during the week. Please join the many GSB employees who will be walking for this great cause, and pledge generously.”
Meals on Wheels at LifePath supports over 1,300 local elders every year. Thanks to community support from local businesses and organizations like GSB and individuals like you, the funding deficit is lessened, allowing our program to have no waiting list for eligible elders in need of a hot meal.
