​Dress down to support Meals on Wheels

Cayman Islands Meals on Wheels is inviting individuals, businesses, schools and organizations islandwide to participate in its annual “Seniors Rock” Dress Down Day fundraiser next Friday, Sept. 28.

“Whether you dress in orange or wear a Meals on Wheels commemorative T-shirt, wristband or ribbon, all funds raised from this event provide Meals on Wheels with the resources needed to provide over 48,000 meals each year,” organizers said in a press release.

A $5 donation to Meals on Wheels provides a senior citizen in need with one hot, nutritious meal and a soup, delivered by one of the more than 100 volunteers.

“In many cases, the Meals on Wheels service allows a senior to remain independent and in their homes for a longer period of time. Meals on Wheels relies on the support of the public and private funding. We have a recipient list that continues to grow and we need your support,” the organizers said.

The charity is offering “Seniors Rock” T-shirts for $15, ribbons for $5 and wristbands for $3. They can be purchased outside Cost-U-Less, Foster’s IGA at the Strand, and A.L. Thompson’s on Saturday, Sept. 22.
