Feed A Friend, It’s As Easy As Pie – 28th Anniversary

November 15-24, 2019

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, 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 WheelsUnited Supermarkets, KAMC, and KLBK are teaming up to celebrate our 28th Annual Easy As Pie fundraiser.  Easy As Pie is November 15th – November 24th, 2019 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, flaky crust 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.  If you’re using self-checkout, there will be a scan tag at the register and the attendant will give you your coupons.   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 13th, 2019 (note-the redemption deadline has changed this year).  All proceeds benefit Lubbock Meals on Wheels, and helps over 840 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 15th, 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 your 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 28th year the best ever!!!

Our goal this  year is $75,000!!!

Christmas Tributes

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.
