We’re excited to announce that our annual Raise a Wing event is back for its third year. We’re teaming up with Meals on Wheels America to support their urgent mission to improve the health and quality of life of seniors, so no one is left hungry or isolated.
Raise a Wing is being held on National Chicken Wing Day, Friday, July 29th, at participating accounts throughout the country, where attendees will be encouraged to participate and donate to Meals on Wheels America.
Furthermore, we’re making a financial contribution of $7,500 directly to Meals on Wheels America. In 2021, Bell’s Brewery raised more than $5,000 for the nonprofit.
“Bell’s Brewery is proud to support an organization like Meals on Wheels America because everyone deserves to have the access and resources to live a healthy life, and seniors are no exception,” said Carrie Yunker, Executive Vice President of Bell’s Brewery. “We are eager to “Raise a Wing” and give back more than ever before this year through Bell’s individual donation and additional contributions from our distributor network, and outstanding customer base.”
“We are thrilled that Bell’s is drawing attention to senior hunger and isolation and asking its distributors and customers to get involved,” said Kristine Templin, Chief Development Officer at Meals on Wheels America. “Meals on Wheels programs across the country are a lifeline for vulnerable seniors, and they simply could not meet their mission in local communities without support from caring companies and individuals.”
America’s senior population exceeds 77 million people, and nearly 10 million are threatened by hunger. Programs like Meals on Wheels deliver more than 223 million nutritious meals annually while providing companionship and safety checks.
