A local non-profit is getting a boost from Toyota of La Crosse.
Thursday, they donated $7,500 to Mobile Meals of La Crosse to continue to offer low cost, nutritious, and home-delivered meals to residents in need.
Mobile Meals of La Crosse has operated continuously since 1971. Executive director of Mobile Meals, Melissa Greco, says a donation like this is very beneficial for the program. "It does help us keep the meals cost low and we are also able to replace things such as the coolers or hot carries that our volunteer drivers bring the meals or put the meals in to bring to the recipients."
Greco also says the meal delivery service brings a smile to recipients faces each day, "These people are home bound individuals they also do not see anyone throughout the day so having a smiling face come through the door bring them a hot meal is extremely important and it also helps with their nutrition. Many of these people cannot cook for themselves so it helps to have again that warm meal."
If you would like to volunteer to deliver meals or know someone who is in need of meals, contact Mobile Meals of La Crosse at 608-784-4623.
