Show your love for our seniors – join our 2021 Virtual Neftin Westlake Mazda Love Run and help feed homebound seniors in Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park, Oak Park and the Ventura County side of Westlake Village.
Your support is needed now more than ever!
COVID-19 imposed a sudden and imminent risk to older Americans—and the response from all across this country was unprecedented. Ordinary people stood up, spoke up and gave generously so that Meals On Wheels could provide a lifeline for millions of isolated, frightened seniors whose futures still remain terribly uncertain. We need to keep the momentum of generosity going.
Locally, because of the threat of COVID-19, seniors remain at home and are more reliant on meals coming to them. Since mid-March, Senior Concerns has stepped up its home delivered meal program to meet this need, and at the same time, offer restaurant quality meals, and vital social connections.
We have grown from delivering 800 meals a week to now delivering more than 4,000. That’s 130,000 meals since March!
To further support homebound seniors, we are also delivering free nonperishable household essentials from our new Pantry. Things like shelf stable food, hard to find cleaning products, paper goods and personal care items. And, providing social connections from our 300 strong team of volunteers who deliver meals seven days a week.
Every race registration, as well as every dollar you fundraise, goes directly to delivering meals and essential groceries to local, homebound seniors.
