Great Neighbors

Tuesday, June 12, 2018

The Voluntary Action Center of the Iowa Great Lakes would like to give a big thank you to the Good Neighbor Fund and all who help support it for their generous donation and continued support. This donation helps support our local Meals on Wheels program, a program that is crucial for our local homebound neighbors.

Many people have contacted VAC recently regarding their concerns for our clients who receive Meals on Wheels. They have been reading about cuts to the Federal Community Services Block Grants; money that many localities across the nation use to support their Meals on Wheels program. While many areas of the country are reducing or even eliminating Meals on Wheels services, we are fortunate in this community to have so many groups like the Good Neighbor fund that help support the Voluntary Action Center's costs to keep our Meals on Wheels program solvent.
