Alameda Meals on Wheels Wine Tasting Fundraiser
It was a spectacular Sunday of fundraising at Rock Wall Wine Company for Alameda Meals on Wheels. There was the requisite wine tasting, eating great local food, enjoying local cuisine, bidding on an amazing array of auction items, and most of all, hobnobbing with other Alamedans looking to support a good cause.
AEC Living, not only is at the ready to go to a great party, but we are also delivering for Alameda Meals on Wheels every Monday morning!
Alameda Meals on Wheels (AMOW), is a locally-funded, seven-days-a-week program that has been delivering hot, nourishing meals, to Alameda residents since 1973! Each day, (holidays included), their cheerful and caring volunteers, deliver a mid-day meal to more than 140 Alameda residents of all ages that need their assistance – whether due to recent surgery or hospitalization, because they aren’t able to get out to grocery shop, or because they can’t cook their own meals. Subscribers pay on a sliding fee scale, based upon their ability.
Scores of volunteers provide the delivery system for the meals that prepared daily. These volunteers often provide the only personal contact and conversation their homebound recipients have on a daily basis. Look into volunteering yourself by clicking here!
AEC Living takes pride in our record of giving back to our community; we love Alameda, and want it to continue to be a place we are proud to come from and proud to be in, and we believe that building a better community requires participation – you must contribute time, talent, and treasure.
