CONTRA COSTA COUNTY—Meals on Wheels Diablo Region thanks all the generous donors who helped raise $20,000 as a matching donation from Travis Credit Union, through the Travis Credit Union Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Initiative.
The $40,000 they received because of the match from the Travis Credit Union Foundation will help Meals on Wheels Diablo Region meet the 40 percent increase in need for home delivered meals they have seen since the beginning of the pandemic. These funds will go toward meal delivery as well as services like Fall Prevention, Health and Wellness, Care Management, and our Friendly Visitors Program.
“We are extremely grateful for the support from Travis Credit Union Foundation from its Covid-19 Relief Initiative. Their generous match will benefit isolated and food insecure seniors in the community,” said Meals on Wheels Diablo Region’s Executive Director, Caitlin Sly.
