AKRON, OH (PRWEB) April 13, 2015
Mature Services is proud to announce receiving a $1,000 grant from Meals on Wheels America, through participating in Subaru of America’s “Share the Love” event in 2014/2015.
“The funds will be used to purchase a Cambro food carrier for Mature Services’ Nutrition program that will enable food to maintain proper, hot holding temperatures and ensure our clients receive safe, quality meals,” said Linda Valentine, President & CEO of Mature Services, Inc.
In addition, the Cambro food carrier will eliminate drivers from returning to Mature Services’ nutrition locations twice per day for more meal deliveries. Over 10 years, this grant will help Mature Services fight senior hunger and isolation by enabling us to provide an additional 10,381 meals that will impact 1,730 seniors in need.
“We were honored to participate in the “Share the Love” event this year,” said Valentine. “It is the generous support of organizations like Meals on Wheels America and Subaru America that make it possible for Mature Services to continue to serve older adults in the community,” Valentine added.
Mature Services provides programs including homecare, alcohol, substance abuse and gambling treatment and prevention, mental health counseling, job training, home delivered and congregate meals, volunteer opportunities and emergency food pantry.
This event was designed as a way for Subaru retailers to give back to communities throughout the United States. Over the past six years, Subaru has donated $50 million to charity, focusing this year on fighting against isolation and hunger in the older population.
