Donation helps drive Meals on Wheels
MAREEBA Toyota has generously donated $1,100 to Mareeba Meals on Wheels to help keep the essential service delivering meals to the elderly.
Meals on Wheels Mareeba president, Patricia Goldfinch, received the donation from Toyota sales manager Andrew Ford recently and says the money will be welcomed with open arms.
“The donation will certainly be used towards pro-viding and purchasing items for the kitchen,” Ms Goldfinch said.
“It has been really difficult over the last 18 months
with the price of everything increasing – not only food but also energy which we have to consume a lot of.”
The increase in costs for Meals on Wheels was bought to Mr Ford’s attention and he knew immediately that he had to give them a helping hand.
“As alluded, cost is going up for everybody and everyone needs a little bit of a helping hand,” he said.
“Obviously, Meals on Wheels helps the elderly a lot and they have been around for so long so we knew we had to give them a helping hand.”
