Feeding on average 160 elderly people across George Town, Bodden Town and East End, the meals provided by MOW can, in many cases, be the only meal an individual receives for the day.
According to Appleby Cayman Managing Partner, Bryan Hunter, the idea to have a food drive came about following the Appleby Cayman Charity Day initiative held in June. He said: “Meals on Wheels was one of the 10 charities selected to receive sponsorship as we were surprised to learn about the extent of the problem. Our staff felt compelled to do more to help and took it upon themselves to organise the food drive to extend the support currently offered by the charity itself.”
In addition to the food drive, a number of staff members stepped up to volunteer to deliver meals in the West Bay and Bodden Town areas.
The Appleby Cayman Charity Day is an annual event. It supports charities with an interest in child and family welfare, animal welfare or education. To learn more visit: applebyglobal.com/caymancharityday.
