I am very excited that IPA has partnered with Meals on Wheels of Tampa. Helping the homebound and seniors is a very compassionate and rewarding experience each and every week.
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) February 22, 2012
Independent Producers of America, LLC (IPA) and its “Good News Crew” announced its partnership with Meals On Wheels of Tampa, Florida where they are participating in the Adopt-A-Route Program delivering meals to homebound and seniors. IPA is serving this charity weekly and currently delivering over 130 meals per week to those in need. IPA Creative Media Director, Alexandra Infante comments, “I am very excited that IPA has partnered with Meals On Wheels of Tampa. Helping the homebound and seniors is a very compassionate and rewarding experience each and every week.”
IPA is also committed to being a captain of tables for Meals On Wheels of Tampa’s 10th Annual Nourish the Homebound Breakfast event. This event is a one-hour community fundraising event benefitting the homebound and seniors in Tampa. This year they are featuring the Gospel Choir from Academy Prep Center of Tampa and a continental breakfast will be served. IPA encourages the local community to be a part of this event to bring awareness to local communities. The event will be on Thursday, March 8, 2012 from 7:30 a.m.-8:30 a.m., with doors opening at 7:00 a.m. at Higgins Hall, 5225 N. Himes Avenue (St. Lawrence Church, corner of Himes and Hillsborough). Interested people may contact Alexandra Infante, IPA’s Creative Media Director at 813-983-2900 or 1-800-772-8667. If people are interesting in learning more but are unable to attend this breakfast they can always visit Meals On Wheels of Tampa’s website direct at http://www.mowtampa.org.
“Meals On Wheels of Tampa is so much more than just delivering meals. We learned that they can assist in so many other ways. One story that impacted us greatly referred to a delivery who’s volunteer noticed something was simply wrong with the recipient so they called into the Meals On Wheels of Tampa headquarters and was able to get the recipient immediate medical attention which resulted in saving a life,” commented Sondra Bradley, IPA National Training and Operations Leader. There is such a need in local communities to have volunteers to service areas such as this and giving back is certainly a fulfilling experience by making a difference. Meals On Wheels of Tampa is a privately-funded nonprofit organization whose volunteers deliver hot, mid-day meals to the homebound and seniors Monday through Friday, with frozen meals for the weekend. They offer a six-week rotating menu that is nutritionally balanced and prepared by their own full-time kitchen staff. Meals are made fresh every morning and delivered in a sealed meal tray. The meals are kept hot during delivery to recipients throughout Hillsborough Co., using their hot-bag delivery system. Caring volunteers deliver meals to people who have a hard time preparing meals for themselves, which helps them to remain independent in their own homes.
IPA encourages others to get involved. Meals On Wheels of Tampa’s volunteer program identifies, recruits, trains and retains part-time heroes, including volunteer drivers and those willing to help with jobs of all types required to accomplish Meals On Wheels’ mission of providing hot nutritious meals and a caring contact to their homebound and senior neighbors. People can offer to participate in the following ways: Delivery of Meals, Site Organizer, On-Call Driver, Special Events, Assistant, Office Administrative Assistant or Kitchen Assistant. These are wonderful opportunities for local businesses, civic and faith-based organizations to get involved through their Adopt-A-Route Program.
