The second annual Meals on Wheels fundraiser will take place Saturday August 23rd at Railtown 1897 State Parkin Jamestown. Meals on Wheels Coordinator Randy Hunsaker was KVML´s Friday morning Newsmaker.
Hunsaker says that it costs approximately $100,000 each year to keep the program running, so this single fundraiser is a major part of its budget to supply meals to seniors.
Hunsaker said, “What this fundraiser does is provide us the opportunity to provide meals to those who can not get out to get their food and to those who are homebound who can not cook their own food.”
The Saturday night fundraiser will include a train ride and meal from Seven Sisters restaurant. Music will be provided by the Black Irish Band, Lori Brandon and Dave Rainwater. Call 533-2622 for ticket information.
The Newsmaker of the Day can be heard each weekday morning at 6:47, 7:47 and 8:47 on AM-1450 KVML.
