Five Weeks of Giving 2014 – Citymeals

December 6, 2014 in Appaman News

Lynn’s charity of choice for Appaman’s annual Five Weeks of Giving is Citymeals.

Lynn says:

“As a young girl I remember going weekly with my mom to deliver meals on wheels in suburban Detroit.  At the time, I wasn’t aware of the impact and considered it just part of our routine.  I realize now that being included in this generous use of our time was a great life lesson.  I want to donate to Meals on Wheels as an adult, and in honor of my mom, who instilled in me the importance of giving back. Service to others is a wonderful lesson to teach our youth.”

Citymeals is one of the largest meals-on-wheels programs in the U.S.  They provide 2 million meals to 18,000 elderly New yorkers each year.  Beyond the nutritional value of the meals there is a human companionship value that is priceless.

Consider Citymeals in this season of giving. For more information, please visit citymeals.org.

Every holiday season, Appaman employees each get to select a charity of their choice to receive a donation. View all of 2014’s Five Weeks of Giving selections here.
