On Saturday, May 13, 2023 MOWMC is marking its 50th anniversary at our newest signature event, the
Paws for Our Cause Pet Walk. This unique event will commemorate the 50 years of growth and impact that Meals on Wheels of Mercer County has had in our community.
Why a Pet Walk? Imagine you are isolated at home and the only other living thing in your home is your pet. We know the tremendous value a pet can bring to our lives. You would do anything to keep that “furry family member” alive. This would include feeding them your meal before you feed yourself.
Sharing the only food they have is not good for the elder or their pet. This is why Meals on Wheels of Mercer County has seen to the needs of these lower income seniors by establishing a Pet Pantry which provides free pet food twice a month along with their human meal so neither go hungry!
So many families in Mercer County have been touched by the services we continue to provide. This, in large part, is due to loyal community supporters. Please share this special day, meet our Board members, and chat with our many amazing volunteers who keep the wheels turning every single day. And don’t forget to bring your furry family member if you have one!
Please register for the Paws for Our Cause Pet Walk on May 13, 2023 from 1PM-3PM at Rosedale Park here: https://www.mealsonwheelsmercer.org/annual-pet-walk
