March for Meals 5K
Each year, the entire month of March is designated as March for Meals! Sponsored nationally by Meals on Wheels America and locally by the Athens Community Council on Aging, the month is celebrated with a variety of opportunities to learn more about and experience the efforts at filling the plates of the older adults within our own community who are homebound or without the resources to prepare a healthy meal for themselves.
ACCA is still in action!
Join us for ACCA’s 11th annual March for Meals Virtual 5K from March 21st-March 27th!
Now more than ever, the focus on assisting our seniors in need is vital. At ACCA, we are lacing up our tennis shoes in order to maintain our mission of leaving no senior behind. We are continuing ACCA’s meal services to older adults within our community. You, too, can help us fill their plates by running or walking this year’s 5K – virtually! By participating virtually, your registration fee will still benefit the Meals on Wheels program, a critical resource for our area seniors. And, while we cannot offer awards for everyone or series points, your participation will keep all of us on track and sprinting towards ending senior hunger in Athens! Overall awards will be presented to overall male, overall female, masters male and masters female.
We’re 100% virtual with our event this year to ensure the health and safety of our participants. Run, jog or walk at your house, on a treadmill or in the park with your dog any time the week of March 21–March 27. Fun fact? This week also lines up perfectly with Meals on Wheels America March for Meals Champion Week. It’s the perfect opportunity for YOU to be a CHAMPION for our local seniors! Make sure to register by March 5th to receive your March for Meals 5K t-shirt!
You are part of our team and we hope you will consider running or walking. Challenge friends and family members across the U.S. to do the same! Register for the March for Meals Virtual 5K today and then head outside and run your 5K in your neighborhood, at your local park or on your treadmill before noon on Saturday, March 27. Don’t forget! Please share your virtual race pictures with us on social media with the hashtag #m4mVR2021

The 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event
Exciting news! For the 13th year running, the Meals on Wheels network is participating in the 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event. Over the past twelve years, Subaru and its retailers have helped Meals on Wheels to deliver more than 2.3 million meals nationwide to seniors in need.
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
This November 19, 2020, through January 4, 2021, for every new Subaru vehicle purchased or leased, Subaru will donate $250 to the customer’s choice of participating charities.* Meals on Wheels is one of four national participating charities and has been since the inception of the event. Through this event, as a member of Meals on Wheels America, Organization Name will receive a share of the donation from Subaru vehicles sold at participating Subaru Retailers.
Each donation helps these programs enable seniors to age with independence and dignity in their own homes, where they want to be. Subaru and its retailers support Meals on Wheels because it’s part of their commitment—to leaving the world a better place than they found it through the core values of trust and love.
We’re incredibly grateful to Subaru and its retailers for supporting our organization and the seniors we serve. With that in mind, we thought you might want to learn a little bit more about the Share the Love Event.
The 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event takes place from November 19, 2020, through January 4, 2021.
*Disclaimer: Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased from November 19, 2020, through January 4, 2021, to four national charities designated by the purchaser or lessee. Pre-approved Hometown Charities may be selected for donation depending on retailer participation. For every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased during the campaign period, participating retailers will donate a minimum of $50 in total to their registered Hometown Charities. Purchasers/lessees must make their charity designations by January 15, 2021. The four national charities will receive a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 each. See your local Subaru retailer for details or visit subaru.com/share. All donations made by Subaru of America, Inc.
