It’s been a difficult year for older adults in our community, but we know how resilient they are! Even with restrictions and closures, HESSCO continued to serve our consumers in a safe way to keep them connected during an isolating time. We’re asking for your support during the annual Give65 Event to continue providing Meals on Wheels to all seniors in need, along with special food products, such as fresh seasonal fruit and vegetable boxes, added shelf stable meals for emergencies, additional frozen meals and holiday meals.
Save the date, on July 13-16 consider making a gift to HESSCO at https://www.give65.org/HESSCO2021
We appreciate your support!

Today is the last day to help older adults in Norfolk County in need! When you purchase or lease a new #Subaru during The 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event! Head to your local retailer today and select #MealsOnWheels as your charity of choice to receive a $250 donation! What better way to start the new year!
Thank you to our Subaru retailers
This holiday season you can ensure that older adults in South Norfolk County are remembered! If you are in the market for a new vehicle, consider purchasing or leasing a new Subaru, and remember to select Meals on Wheels as your charity of choice. The 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event runs through January 4, 2021. For every new Subaru vehicle that is purchased or leased, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities. Meals on Wheels is one of four national participating charities. We are thankful to Subaru and its retailers for supporting Meals on Wheels!
On December, 1st, HESSCO will be participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to gratitude and giving. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, following the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This kicks off the holiday giving season and inspires people to give back in impactful ways to nonprofits and causes they support. We’re partnering with GIVE65, a program of the Home Instead Foundation, and are hoping to receive matching grants for our Meals on Wheels program. We have a chance to receive up to $5,000 in matching grants which are given on a first-donated, first-matched basis.
We’re kindly asking you to visit www.give65.org/HESSCOGivingTuesday on December 1st. We encourage you to give as early on December 1st as possible (event starts at 1:00 a.m.) to have a chance to receive matching funds. With your support and our partnership with GIVE65, we have the opportunity to make an even greater impact in the lives of older adults and their families right here in South Norfolk County.
Thank you for your support!

HESSCO is participating in #GIVE65 in One Week!
#GIVE65 is a one-of-a-kind, crowd-fundraising platform devoted to helping nonprofit organizations raise money online for programs and services that create hope for Seniors. This event officially kicks off July 15th and runs through July 17th, 2020. HESSCO has the opportunity to receive up to $5,000 in matching funds to help pay for Holiday Meals for our consumers! HESSCO meal requests have increased in the past few months by 75% and we anticipate this will carry through the Holiday season. Instead of seeking donations for this important cause during the crunch of the holiday season, we will be campaigning in July to take advantage of this unique opportunity to potentially double the funds we collect. Please consider donating on July 13th or 14th as scheduled gifts have the greatest chance to be matched. Stay tuned for more details on how to donate.
