Aging True initiated the Steve Graham Legacy Fund to benefit Meals on Wheels in honor of Steve’s tireless advocacy for seniors and important contribution to Meals on Wheels.
Before Steve Graham’s passing in 2011, he had helped to raise over a million dollars by spearheading an annual fundraising effort each Thanksgiving through Fort Caroline Presbyterian Church. What an amazing impact! As you can imagine, in this uncertain economic time, many frail and homebound elders continue to struggle. And, we would again appreciate your consideration and generosity.
Today, contributions to the Steve Graham Legacy Fund continue to make a vital difference. Aging True Meals on Wheels served over 200,000 meals to Jacksonville’s frail, homebound and isolated seniors. Every day, almost 800 seniors benefit from a hot nutritious meal delivered by our staff and network of coordinated community volunteers.
Occasionally, we hear from the seniors and families we serve. One daughter wrote in to us: “We are so grateful for everything your volunteers deliver to mom – the newspaper, juice, milk and hot meal is so appreciated!” An elder wrote and said, “I really appreciate everything that you do because I am wheelchair bound and I can’t cook. So, I am grateful for everything!” These are just some of the powerful examples of the impact that Meals on Wheels is having across this community. In the last year alone, we have served nearly 1,000 Jacksonville seniors, improving their quality of life by allowing them to remain at home with dignity.
We ask you to please contribute to the Steve Graham Legacy Fund for Meals on Wheels. All monies donated to this fund will be used exclusively to benefit the efforts of Meals on Wheels to provide as many meals to our community as possible. Your tax deductible contribution, in any amount, will make a difference and Steve’s Legacy continues!
Help local seniors live with independence and dignity by donating to Aging True.
