What is Kitsap Great Give?
We are extremely grateful to our past contributors and proud to be participating in Kitsap Great Give once again. The Kitsap Great Give is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Kitsap Community Foundation and our Presenting Partner, the United Way of Kitsap County, for the benefit of the greater Kitsap area.
Donations we receive during the Kitsap Great Give campaign will be used to provide nutritious, well-balanced meals, a friendly smile, a safety check and more to Kitsap County seniors, so they can continue to live independently with dignity in their own homes.
For 24 hours on Tuesday, April 24, you may visit the Kitsap Great Give site and make a donation to Meals on Wheels Kitsap and any other organization of your choosing.
The best part is that every dollar you donate will be proportionally matched by the event sponsors. Your donation can also help us to win extra donation prizes throughout the day.
We hope you'll consider being a part of the biggest day of charity ever in Kitsap County.
We are now accepting donations on our donor page via the Kitsap Great Give site. If you wish to make a donation, please click the blue "PLEDGE" button below or enter this URL https://kitsapgreatgive.org/npo/meals-on-wheels-kitsap into your browser.
Meals on Wheels Kitsap provided 58,456 meals to 864 unduplicated senior clients last year. An additional 3,604 clients received nutrition education and dietary counseling services, emergency meal bags and senior farmers market nutrition program checks and fresh produce bags.
Clients like Ed, a 68-year-old Bremerton man, who is disabled due to a femur fracture and has arthritis. He lives alone and gets around his small home in a motorized wheelchair. Ed enjoys the healthy, well-balanced meals he receives each weekday and is thankful for the safety checks and friendly visits. Another client, Imogene, is a 94-year-old woman who has been receiving home delivered meals for more than 14 years. Due to a brain hematoma and peripheral neuropathy, she is unable to safely prepare nutritious meals. Imogene looks forward to the delicious daily meals that are delivered directly to her home by caring volunteers--many of whom have become good friends. Seniors like Ed and Imogene are able to live independently with dignity in their own homes due to the valuable services they receive from Meals on Wheels Kitsap.
Funds received from the Kitsap Great Give will be used to provide nutritious, well-balanced meals, a friendly smile, a safety check and more to Kitsap County seniors like Ed and Imogene so they can continue to live independently with dignity in their own homes.
