Who we are ...
They heard about the need and did something about it!
When these four young girls heard that there would be a cutback in funding for Meals on Wheels they sprang into action. Selling Lemonade in the Plainwell area they raised $250 for the Senior Services Meals on Wheels program!
Pictured here are Dan Pontius, Director of Food Services as well as: Autumn, Emerson, Brooke and Lauryn, and Dr. Bob Littke, President and CEO of Senior Services of Southwest Michigan.
In addition to a behind the scenes tour of the main kitchen in Kalamazoo each of the girls were introduced to older adult volunteers, leadership staff, the main Chef and Food services staff of the agency and then were each presented with a plaque thanking them for their gift!
We are so thankful for their gift and the spirit that they each demonstrated.

Thanks to our 2017 Golf Partners!
Special thanks to Corey’s Bootery and Langeland Family Funeral Homes, Title and Signature sponsors, for helping to make Monday’s outing such a spectacular event! This year we had 23 teams, and over 25 in kind sponsors to help support our efforts to raise funds and awareness for our Meals on Wheels (MOW) Wait List.
We are so very glad you could join us, and in doing so, help us serve thousands of older adults in Kalamazoo and Calhoun Counties. This year all proceeds help the over 200 frail, homebound older adults in Kalamazoo County, who are eligible for, but cannot receive home delivered meals, due to insufficient funding. Thank you for your support; know that you have made a difference!
