Houston Public Media Partners with Meals on Wheels

Today is community partnership day during News 88.7’s campaign.

A supportive community is a thriving community.

Today, you have the opportunity to invest in Houston Public Media, plus help provide a meal and some companionship to someone in need.

Interfaith Ministries’ Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston program provides a home-delivered meal to homebound seniors over 60 and their spouses. The program also delivers breakfast and weekend meals to the most frail and isolated seniors. The nutritional support helps seniors stay independent and in their own homes.

Every day, over 4,500 lunches are served to area seniors who may otherwise lack food and companionship. Seniors also receive nonperishable food like peanut butter and dried and canned goods to keep in case disaster strikes, and other food runs out.

Houston Public Media continues this long-running collaboration as a way to raise awareness of the Meals on Wheels benefits for the city, while offering a valuable incentive to contribute to the Houston Public Media News 88.7 campaign. With the support of our members, thousands of additional meals can be served, and the entire community benefits.

When you make your donation today, simply select the “Meals on Wheels pack” as your thank-you gift. You’ll be doing something great for the public media service that helps you thrive and for a valuable institution that helps the needy in our community.
