LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

Lubbock Meals on Wheels is proud to announce that it has received a $2,500 grant from Meals on Wheels America to support its client pet support program. Funding will be used to provide food, supplies and care for the pets of area clients, which can often be a financial and physical challenge for clients to do so on their own.

In total, Meals on Wheels America has granted over $200,000 to nearly 100 local Meals on Wheels programs through the Meals on Wheels Loves Pets initiative this year. Funding is made possible in part through a donation from the former Banfield Charitable Trust. To date, the grant program has distributed more than $2.4 million in funding and pet food donations.

“While pets are invaluable companions to homebound seniors, positively impacting their health and well-being, they can also be a challenge to care for alone,” said Meals on Wheels America President and CEO Ellie Hollander. “The Meals on Wheels Loves Pets program, along with many generous community donations, enables Lubbock Meals on Wheels to provide pet food and other necessary services to ease some of that burden and make it possible for local seniors and their beloved pets to stay together.” Currently Lubbock Meals on Wheels provides over 1,800 pounds of kibble to over 260 pets. As our recipient numbers grow, so do the numbers of pets that we support.
