"Giving back to the community is at the core of what we do," explained
Brent Blair, Clinical Director at Hands On PT. "Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne
has a mission that aligns with our core values in regards to giving to
those in need, we feel it is our responsibility as community members to
donate to organizations that make a difference here at home."
*About Meals on Wheels: *Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne began delivery of
meals to the homebound in September, 1970, under the auspices of Church
Women United. Meals were prepared by a local restaurant with volunteers
picking them up there for delivery. Later that year, the agency was able to
move its location to St. Paul's Lutheran Church, hiring its own staff to
prepare the food. Special dietary needs could now be met, and
individualized portions became possible.
Soon the agency joined United Way of Laramie County. For a while they
received Federal and State funds through Title III of the Older Americans
Act. Those funds ended in 1976. Since then the program has been funded
through the generous support of our local community, allocations from the
City and County, in addition to the United Way of Laramie County. Donations
from Churches, Civic Groups and Individuals are an integral part of their
budget, supplementing for clients who cannot pay the full cost of the meals.
