Donate Dinner is Saturday, November 21, 2015 - Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Donate Dinner is one of the largest volunteer events in the Portland metropolitan area.  Last year, 1,500 people volunteered for 2-hour shifts and the outcome was incredible – they raised more than $245,000 to support Meals on Wheels People.  Thats 62,000 meals for seniors in our community!

Local grocery stores participate by having volunteers greet customers as they come in the store and handout cards.  The card explains that if a customer would like to “donate dinner to a homebound senior” they tell the cashier when they check out and the donation will be added to their grocery bill.  Each shift is only two hours and available from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. It’s that simple!

It takes a village to care for our elders. Volunteers are the key to the success of this event.  Last year, each volunteer raised an average of $225 per shift.  When there was no volunteer to greet customers and hand out cards, donations go down dramatically.  This year, with the increase in transportation and food costs, volunteers are needed more than ever to help raise money to feed our local area seniors. We thank you all!

We are grateful for the generosity of our community members – the customers and sponsors who contribute money, the volunteers who give their time, and the local grocery stores that create the opportunity.
