Feed A Friend, It’s As Easy As Pie – 27th Anniversary
With Thanksgiving close to a month away, it’s time to start thinking seriously about PIE! We have the perfect way for you to kick off the pie season. This year, Lubbock Meals on Wheels and United Supermarkets are teaming up to celebrate our 27th Annual Easy As Pie fundraiser. Easy As Pie is November 9th – November 18th, 2018 at all Lubbock Amigos, Market Streets, and United Supermarkets.
United customers and LMOW supporters are encouraged to donate $5.00 to receive a coupon for a free Mrs. Smith’s pie (pumpkin, sweet potato, very berry, dutch apple, homestyle apple, peach, or cherry).
It’s as easy as… telling your checker to add it to your total when you get your groceries. Donations can also be given to the volunteer stations located in each store or at the customer service counter as well. As always, you can donate at the Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ office and still receive Mrs. Smith’s coupons.
Coupons are redeemable at any Lubbock Amigos, Market Street, or United through December 7, 2018 (note-the redemption deadline has changed this year). All proceeds benefit Lubbock Meals on Wheels, and help people remain at home, well fed, and independent as long as possible.
The event kicks off with a celebrity pie eating contest at Noon on Friday, November 9th, at the United on 128th & Indiana Avenue. Thanks to United Supermarkets, Mrs. Smith’s, KAMC, and KLBK for their generous contributions to this event.
Over 350 volunteers are needed throughout the week to help collect donations and hand out pie coupons at the eleven area United Supermarkets. If you group or organization is interested in volunteering, please call Brittainy at Lubbock Meals on Wheels at (806)792-7971).
Be sure to come out during Easy As Pie week and help us make this 27th year the best ever!!! Our goal this year is $70,000!!!
During the busy holiday season, it is hard to find time to address and mail all those Christmas cards. At the same time, it is so important to remember everyone at this time of the year. Let Lubbock Meals on Wheels help you out with their Christmas Card Tribute Program. When you give a minimum $5.00 gift in honor of a friend, family member, or business acquaintance, a lovely holiday acknowledgment card will be sent. Both individuals and businesses are encouraged to take advantage of this meaningful program – save your valuable time and support a worthwhile cause. Please send or bring your Christmas card list (include names and addresses) to Lubbock Meals on Wheels, 2304-34th Street, Lubbock, Texas 79411. In general names and addresses need to be received by mid-December.
12-Days of Christmas
Thanks to the efforts of many area schools, churches, civic groups, individuals, and local businesses, a variety of holiday items are distributed to Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ recipients on each of the 12 business days prior to the Christmas holiday. Some of the twelve days’ gifts will include calendars, fresh fruit, puzzles, and holiday treats. Recipients’ pets also receive a special holiday surprise. These gifts will cheer to those who cannot leave their homes to enjoy colorful holiday lights or attend seasonal celebrations.
Each of the 12 business days prior to the Christmas holiday, Lubbock Meals on Wheels’ volunteers deliver the special items along with the regular meal. If you are interested in providing some of the items needed for this very special project, please call 806-792-7971. You can help us create a festive holiday season for the homebound in our community.
