DO SOMETHING
ABOUT HUNGER IN ATLANTA

Corporate Engagement

At Meals On Wheels Atlanta, we’re dedicated to supporting senior independence through meals, shelter, education, and community. An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs.

 

Many corporations match employee donations (or the tax deductible component of your membership) to our organization.

If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.

 

Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!
