WesleyLife was thrilled to receive a check in the amount $7,000 from the National AgriMarketing Association Iowa Chapter (NAMA) on April 21. Proceeds included registration fees from the Cold Run for Warm Meals event, as well a direct contribution from NAMA.
The Cold Run for Warm Meals event was held March 26, 2016, and consisted of a 2.5 mile run/walk that raised funds to benefit older Iowans who are food insecure in the Greater Des Moines Area and are served through WesleyLife's Meals on Wheels program.
In 2015, WesleyLife Meals on Wheels delivered over 223,000 meals to the homes of more than 1,600 seniors struggling with hunger. The program relies on donations, and never turns a client away for their inability to pay for the meal. Nearly, 88 percent of meals are provided to clients at low or no cost.
Thanks to the generosity of runners/walkers and NAMA!
