The Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore Inc. has awarded a grant for $10,000 to MAC Inc., the Area Agency on Aging, in support of its Meals on Wheels program in Somerset, Wicomico and Worcester counties.
The funds were awarded from the Foundation’s Mini Grants Program.
The grant will help address recent funding reductions to MAC’s Meals on Wheels program.
MAC’s home-delivered meal program provides nutritious meals to home-bound elderly who are confined to bed, lack transportation or are too frail to cook for themselves. While delivering meals, the driver serves as a link to other community services and resources. The regular visits also provide reassurance and help alleviate some of the anxieties of elderly persons who live alone.
