SOS/Meals on Wheels is competing in the Safeco Insurance® Make More Happen Contest along with Total Pacific Insurance Brokers. And we need your help!
All this is happening because Total Pacific Insurance Brokers has been selected for a Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award because of their volunteer service with SOS/Meals on Wheels. The award comes with a $3,000 donation from Safeco Insurance for SOS/Meals on Wheels and entry in the Make More Happen Contest.
Your votes in the Make More Happen Contest could help SOS/Meals on Wheels receive even more money from Safeco. Here’s how it works:
The community is encouraged to vote for their favorite agency-and-charity team featured in the Make More Happen Contest. (We hope that’s us!)
The three agency-charity teams with the most votes will win additional donations from Safeco for the charities. First place gets $10,000, second place $5,000, and third place $3,000. (Of course, we hope we get first place, but we need your help!)
If the total votes made during the contest reach or exceed a vote goal, all charities featured in the contest will receive an additional $500 donation from Safeco Insurance. (This means voting every day is important!)
At SOS/Meals on Wheels, we are so grateful for Total Pacific Insurance Brokers for helping us provide delicious hot meals for homebound seniors!
Of course, everyone who volunteers to make their local communities better deserve to be celebrated, so when you visit the Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Contest, take a little time to read about the great work everyone does and cheer on those that inspire you. Be sure to leave a cheer for SOS/Meals on Wheels or Total Pacific Insurance Brokers! We hope you’ll come away inspired to make a difference.
You can vote once a day from 10 a.m. Pacific Time July 27 through 10 a.m. Pacific Time Aug. 17!
The Safeco Insurance® Make More Happen Contest has ended, and while Total Pacific Insurance Brokers and SOS/Meals on Wheels team was not one of the top three vote-getters, we truly appreciate the support of everyone who took the time to vote.
Thanks to everyone voting in the contest, the vote goal of 28,000 was exceeded so all 33 charities featured in the contest will receive an additional $500 from Safeco. That means SOS/Meals on Wheels will receive a total of $3,500 on behalf of Total Pacific Insurance Brokers because Total Pacific Insurance Brokers was selected for a Safeco Insurance Make More Happen Award.
Want to find out who took the top spots in the contest? You can see all the winners and Make More Happen Award recipients at safeco.com/make-more-happen.
We congratulate all of the award winners — along with the volunteers who work so hard to make more happen in their communities.
THANK YOU, SUPERVISOR CHAN, FOR SUPPORTING HOMEBOUND SENIORS IN NEED!
Alameda County Supervisor Wilma Chan has donated $100,000 to help Meals on Wheels continue providing hot, nutritious meals and a daily wellness check to homebound seniors in the City of Oakland and central Alameda County. Supervisor Chan’s generous contribution will help us feed some of our community’s most vulnerable seniors, but we still need your help!
Please make a financial contribution today in support of Meals on Wheels. Donations of any size are welcome and will be used to feed a senior in need. Just $40 can feed a senior for a week!
The demand for home-delivered meals continues to grow as the population ages, but the funding provided for our services has never been enough to meet the need. At the same time, wages, the price of food, and delivery costs have all increased. We need your help to continue caring for our seniors!
Your contribution will put nourishing food on the tables of seniors in need and help them continue living independent, healthy, and happy lives. Please click on the “Donate” button and make your tax-deductible contribution today!
SOS/Meals on Wheels brought one of our meal recipients, 92 year old, Lola S, to the Alameda County Meals on Wheels “Taste of Southeast Asia” to speak on behalf of senior meal recipients. Here are 2 pictures from last evening!
SOS/Meals on Wheels is registered with the East Bay Community Foundation’s “East Bay Gives 2015” campaign.
