Billie Jo Stedman visits with the Maxwell Group’s Market Made Easy. Carissa Maxwell and Kellen Hoskins focus on non-profits this final month before Income Tax Day.
You can still make donations to an Arizona Charitable Tax Credit qualifying organization, and Market Made Easy is highlighting a few opportunities for their listeners.
Meals on Wheels serves homebound individuals or those that are physically or cognitively unable to get out of their home.
Stedman discusses what services are provided by Meals on Wheels and their volunteer ranks. She explains how to volunteer and donate to the organization. Donor money is applied directly to subsidizing those that are unable to afford the $7 per meal that is usually charged.
Stedman says they don’t turn anyone down and they have no wait list. If a person is unable to afford the cost, they find a variety of support services for the client.
Stedman emphasizes that Meals on Wheels does so much more than simply provide meals. They also check on the well-being of the person and offer some time for conversation and socialization.
