12,000 Americans are turning 60 every day. That's the stunning stat behind the surge in demand for Meals on Wheels. And many of those older residents will need assistance to stay in their homes and 'age in place'.
Meals on Wheels helps them do that with a nutritious meal, a friendly visit and a safety check.
This year, Missoula Aging Services expects to deliver 140,000 meals to homebound individuals and will serve almost 40,000 community lunches at locations throughout Missoula County.
March for Wheels is a once a year opportunity for Missoulians to support this program - you can contribute, sign up to volunteer or learn more at Misssoula Aging Services Dot Org.
March For Wheels will benefit Meals on Wheels programs in Missoula, the Bitterroot Valley and the Seeley Lake Community Center.
