Creative Ways to Give: Supporting Meals on Wheels doesn’t always have to come in the form of a direct donation. Consider some of these unique and practical ways that you can make a difference.

Corporate Volunteering

We welcome the opportunity to work with businesses who want to engage their employees in regular volunteer activities. Whether it’s once a week or once a quarter, we can design an experience that will help your employees make a difference in the lives of our recipients.


Support our Pantry (on-going, throughout the year)

We are always seeking non-perishable pantry items for our recipients. Easy-open, low-preparation foods are welcomed. Unfortunately, we cannot accept home-prepared or food requiring refrigeration. We also aim for low sodium, low sugar and low fat foods to support the nutritional needs of our recipients.

Suggested items include:

LOW SUGAR/HIGH FIBER CEREAL
BROWN RICE or WHOLE GRAIN PASTA
CANNED MEALS (SPAGHETTIOS, RAVIOLI)
PEANUT BUTTER
LOW SUGAR JELLY
LOW SUGAR CANNED FRUIT
CANNED *LOW-SALT* VEGETABLES
JIFFY MIX
SUGAR FREE JELLO
MAC N’CHEESE
CANNED MEAT (TUNA, CHICKEN, ETC.)
SINGLE SERVE SNACK ITEMS (RAISINS, CRACKERS, ETC)

Donations to our Food Services area are accepted between the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. We are located on the campus of Christ Church at Hwy 17N and Long Point Rd. After hours donations can be left in the designated food bins.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

 

Will you give the gift of health and independence?

By making a donation, you're providing the daily nutrition that our homebound neighbors need to remain living independently in their own homes. Your support means that we will continue to deliver healthy meals without charge and without a waiting list to people like Louise, who has limited mobility and relies on us for most of his meals.

As the aging population increases, East Cooper Meals on Wheels is committed to meet the growing needs of future recipients, and your gift can make all the difference to your homebound neighbors, many of whom desire to “age in place.”

Your gift is extremely important because it provides resources that make an immediate impact. With projections for chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease rising sharply, we are learning much more about the direct connection between food and health. Through your support, we can expand our nutritional meal options to better meet the needs of future recipients.

Thank you for your support!
