We Can Wednesday

A 24-Hr day of Giving

Wednesday, May 15, 2024

Meals on Wheels Durham is different from other home-delivered meal services – we provide so much more than a meal!  From daily visits to weekly wellness calls to holiday gifts and dinners to items and services like pet food and vet care, box fans in summer, extra supplies of fresh produce and pantry items – Meals on Wheels Durham provides the extra touches that help a senior feel safe, seen, and loved.

To mark our founding day in the spring of 1975, join us on Wednesday, May 15 for our second annual 24-hour giving campaign, which we’re calling We Can Wednesday. All gifts made this day will go toward supporting the supplemental supplies and services that help keep our seniors feeling more vital, connected, and nourished in mind, body, and spirit.
