Annual March for Meals Campaign
The Center is proud to take part in this annual nationwide effort that takes place each March to ensure that our seniors are not forgotten. 

The goal of our campaign is to create awareness and eradicate senior hunger.
We are grateful for all contributions that make our fundraisers successful.
Thank you to all who participated to help us raise funds for the 3,800 meals given to seniors
under poverty level in OUR community last year.
It costs less to provide a Senior with meals for an entire year than it costs to spend one day in the hospital or ten days in a nursing home. We want seniors to be able to stay in the comfort of their homes longer. Meals on Wheels doesn't just provide a home cooked meal, it includes socialization with the volunteer delivering the meal and a wellness check for those at high risk.

Community Champions Event​

6th Annual Rock-aThon

March 17th 10am-1pm
We hope to raise $30,000 during this fun and entertaining fundraiser! Please donate to your favorite rocker and be sure to stop in and enjoy a traditional St. Patrick's Day meal.
Numerous city employees will volunteer their time in all aspects of our facility during March. Community Champions week is nationally promoted by Meals on Wheels Association of America. 

School Coin Drives

Shamrock Raffle

Our community schools are hosting coin drives and will be volunteering at The Center. It is a wonderful opportunity to teach students the importance of helping those in need.
Stop in The Center during March and buy $1 shamrocks to be placed on the wall of Meals on Wheels supporters. April 1st we will have a raffle and pull names for prizes.

Hy-Vee Reusable Bag Program

Purchase a Hy-vee reusable shopping bag for $2.50 during March and the Meals on Wheels program will receive $1. The red bags are available at the self service checkouts at Hy-Vee.
6th Annual Rock-a-Thon
Tuesday, March 17th 10am-1pm
This annual fundraiser is so much fun and an essential part of our March for Meals campaign.
Community members take the stage and rock to raise donations that help offset the free meals and services provided by The Center. We provide 400 meals a month to low income seniors through our Meals on Wheels program.
Each rocker has a donation bucket so you can stop in any time to donate until the day of the event. You may also mail in a donation or call in a pledge. We would love to have you come to the event to support your favorite rock star, and enjoy some green beer and a traditional Corned Beef & Cabbage meal served 11:30 am-1 pm.  This event is also live on the radio, so listen to the fun! 
​​Let's get rocking on St. Patrick's Day!
