Meals on Wheels gets an extra boost
On Thursday, the SOWEGA Council on Aging, Area on Aging received a $1,000 grant as part of the Restaurant Community Grants program from the Darden Foundation.
The donation will give the Council the chance to serve 142 meals to seniors through the Meals on Wheels program.
SOWEGA Council on Aging Executive Director Kay Hind says, "not only do we appreciate the donation, we also appreciate the recognition."
The Darden Foundation will award more than $1.9 million to more than 850 nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and Canada.
Red Lobster was on hand to donate the money. They are apart of the Restaurant Community Grant program from the Darden Foundation, the charitable arm of Darden Restaurant, Inc.
