Donate

By donating to Meals on Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth, you help us accomplish our mission by ensuring that seniors and homebound citizens in the Lewes and Rehoboth area get the nutrition and social interaction that they need to live independently. When you make a donation to MOWLR, 100% goes directly to providing meals to the homebound in our local community. With each meal costing approximately $6, donors like you make it possible for our clients to enjoy nutritious food in their comfort of their own home.

“For it is in giving that we receive.”

– Saint Francis of Assisi – Catholic Saint, Founder of Franciscans

Tribute & Memorial Donations

Memorial gifts honor someone who has passed away and are remembered by requesting donations to be made in lieu of flowers. Names of loved ones that have passed on are listed on a plaque in the conference room of our office. If you wish to have a loved one listed on our office “in memory” plaque, request that contributions be made to our non-profit agency in lieu of flowers. If we receive $500.00 or more, we will add the full name of your loved one. You can also honor a living individual you would like to see recognized, providing a legacy that your family can remember for a lifetime. For your kindness, we will send an acknowledgment to the family or individual informing them of your generous gift. Please provide us with a picture of your loved one or of the individual you are honoring, so that we can add them to our website.

Planned gifts can be donated to MOWLR in several ways and are best planned with the counsel of a financial or legal adviser. If you plan to include MOWLR in your estate plans or will, be sure to let us know! We want to be able to thank you and express our gratitude and appreciation.

Workplace Matching Donations

Many companies offer a Matching Gift Program, where they will match their employees’ (and their spouses) donations to a charitable organization. This is a wonderful way to multiply the impact and effect of your donation on our clients. For example, if you were to donate $500 to MOWLR, your generous gift would then be matched by your employer who would then also donate $500 to MOWLR. Please check with your employer to see if they’ll match your contribution to our non-profit organization.
