$1,000 Charity Connection Donation Goes to Meals on Wheels Foundation of WNY

Compu-Mail's Charity Connection 2013

Compu-Mail’s Michelle Talley presents the donation check to Lisa Woodring, Director of Foundation for Meals on Wheels WNY.

The Meals on Wheels Foundation of Western New York is the recipient of a $1,000 donation through Compu-Mail’s Charity Connection program. The organization was selected from numerous online nominations made by our clients and associates throughout last fall.

Shandra Holt, a Compu-Mail client from a local agency, nominated Meals on Wheels, writing, “As our local Baby Boomers age, the need for Meals on Wheels’ services is outpacing funding and volunteer services. By supporting Meals on Wheels of WNY, Compu-Mail will help to nourish both the bodies and souls of our homebound WNY neighbors with nutritious meals and the caring and friendship of the volunteers who deliver them.”

The CEO of Meals on Wheels, Tara Ellis, elaborated on what the donation means to the organization: “We’re very grateful to Compu-Mail for their generous donation, and to Shandra for nominating us. Given the tremendous need in our community and the decline in government funding, corporate donations like this one play an increasingly important role in making sure that we can provide food, friendship and independence to 3,600 homebound seniors and disabled individuals each year, while providing peace of mind to their families.”

The $1,000 donation to Meals on Wheels of WNY was the final of three donations given as part of Compu-Mail’s 2013 Charity Connection program. Two donations of $500 each were previously granted to the Western and Central New York Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the BISON Children’s Scholarship Fund.
