Donations sought for meal site Print E-mail

“Meals on Wheels” needs your help

     The Valley Meal Site which operates out of the Kamiah Senior Center is in desperate need of donations to meet their expenses for purchasing more meal trays. These trays are used for home deliveries of “Meals on Wheels.” The money which originally comes from grants was not provided this year and as a result, the meal site will run out of trays in four months. They use approximately 950 trays a month which at about .26 cents per tray is an estimated cost of $247.

     Any and all donations to the meal site would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to help, please contact Mel Tuttle at (208) 451-4593 or call the Kamiah Senior Center at 935-0244.
