“Friends Don’t Let Friends Go Hungry” campaign launched for Detroit seniors in need

The Detroit Area Agency on Aging and Detroit Meals on Wheels has selflessly provided sustenance to seniors in Detroit, Hamtramck, Highland Park, Harper Woods, and the Grosse Pointe area for over 25 years.

Their commitment of service to the community means more than 2,000 seniors – age 60 or older – are provided a variety of meals daily. Meals are distributed to elders that may not be able to cook for themselves, have no help available to prepare food, or are homebound.  

But as more and more seniors find themselves going hungry, demand for the service has increased. Federal dollars that subsist the agency remain stagnant.

The agency is asking those who support their efforts to donate to the “Friends Don’t Let Friends Go Hungry” campaign, which launches this month. Monies donated to the campaign support the mobile food services and the seniors they service.

That’s where you come in. Say you have a family member that benefits from Detroit Meals on Wheels or know someone who does. Here’s your opportunity to financially support an organization that lends a hand to someone you love.

Detroit Meals on Wheels believes that “no gift is too small to make a difference.” Whether you have a dollar in your wallet or 500, every cent counts towards another meal.
