WILMINGTON, Del., August 11, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Many Delawareans 60 years and older live alone, are unable to shop for themselves and live on a fixed income. To assist this population, Delaware Park Casino & Racing recently provided donation boxes in their facility to collect unused vouchers from their guests. During the months of June and July, Delaware Park's charitable guests contributed to Meals on Wheels Delaware, with Delaware Park Casino & Racing making a considerable donation for the grand total of $10,000.
"It is an unfortunate reality that many homebound seniors don't know where their next meal is coming from. Thanks to the generosity of our guests, we can help those who may be struggling," said Ron Baumann, Delaware Park's President & General Manager.
This is the first monetary donation presentation stemming from a new community initiative that will feature a different organization each month. Please visit our website for upcoming beneficiaries and other community partnership information.
Meals on Wheels Delaware's (MOWD) mission is to raise funds, other resources, and awareness to support meal delivery programs to homebound seniors in Delaware. MOWD supports five meal-delivery programs/locations statewide. In 2021, 898,509 hot and nutritious meals were delivered to over 6,600 seniors statewide with the help of over 1,000 volunteers.
