  • Record Funds Donated During Centre Gives 2020

    Centre Gives, the annual 36-hour online giving event sponsored by Centre Foundation, has recorded another record amount raised for the non-profits of Centre County, including State College Area Meals on Wheels. On May 12th and 13th, $36,727 was donated to SCMOW!  Event prizes and stretch pool funds will add to this total. These funds will go a long way towards offsetting the loss of income due to the cancellation of our annual benefit dinner, “A Meal that Matters.”  On behalf of the board, staff, volunteers, and clients of SCMOW, we send a heartfelt THANK YOU to all those who contributed and for your incredible generosity in assisting members of our community who need a little help maintaining their quality of life and independence. 


    Due to the COVID-19 Emergency and the need to avoid large gatherings, the Annual Benefit Dinner scheduled for May 14th has been canceled. We regret that this event cannot be held as it was to feature Penn State and NFL football great, Matt Millen, as our honored guest and speaker. We hope to be back on track in May 2021 and it is our hope that Matt can be with us at that time. To help offset the loss of income from this event, please consider a donation to State College Meals on Wheels during Centre Gives to be held on May 12th and 13th.

Why Meals on Wheels?

Home-delivered meals enable clients to age independently or heal in the comfort of their homes, thereby helping clients maintain a positive mental outlook, sustain social connections, and even help keep their families intact.  On the state level, approximately 15% of Pennsylvania’s senior citizens face food insecurity or threat of hunger (Source: Meals on Wheels Association of Pennsylvania)

Individuals who are food insecure are less likely to have good nutritional habits and are at higher risk of chronic health conditions and depression.  By providing a regular source of nutritional meals, Meals on Wheels fights food insecurity and senior hunger and promotes better health and quality of life.  Clients also benefit from a brief, but daily, social interaction when a volunteer delivers the freshly made meals to the client’s door.
