Coal Creek Meals on Wheels' annual fundraiser is how we raise a significant portion of our budget, helping to ensure that no one in need of a hot meal and a daily wellness check in our community has to go without because of an inability to pay. The success of our fundraiser is 100% dependent on community support.
On Tuesday, April 6, 2021, Coal Creek Meals on Wheels is hosting
our first-ever virtual fundraiser and we would love to have you be a part of it!
Grab your favorite snack and beverage, turn on your computer or mobile device, and take a seat at our virtual table for a few minutes to learn about Coal Creek Meals on Wheels (CCMOW) and what we’re doing to address hunger and isolation in our community!
We invite you to “Giving Goodness: A Virtual Bite-size Banquet,” CCMOW’s first-ever virtual fundraiser, kicking off on Tuesday, April 6, 2021 at 7 p.m. (MT)!
Never before, in the long history of CCMOW, have our services been more desperately needed. The individuals we serve were the hardest hit when everything shut down in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Amidst these unprecedented and challenging times, our clients suddenly found themselves even more isolated, unable to access groceries due to a lack of technology and transportation, and without access to support systems they relied on. With a few tweaks to our program to ensure the safety of our clients, staff, and volunteers, Coal Creek Meals on Wheels was able to continue serving our clients without any interruption - providing a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable members of our community.
This virtual event will include a special video production about CCMOW, some of our clients and volunteers, and how we have continued serving our neighbors in need amidst a national pandemic.
Here's how you can participate:
1) Watch and enjoy our video production (linked above) at your leisure
2) Make a contribution to support our annual goal
This year, we are trying to raise $60,000 to support our goal of serving 10,000 more meals to community members in need. This is an easy and fun way to virtually rally in support of a great cause!
All proceeds from this event will ensure that anyone in need of a made-from-scratch, nutritious meal can have one delivered to their doorstep five days a week, regardless of their ability to pay and are never turned away.
Host a "Watch" Party
By hosting a virtual "watch" party, you connect Coal Creek Meals on Wheels with members of the community who are interested in learning about our organization and services, and want to support our mission. Watch Party Hosts (WPH) help raise awareness about CCMOW and the impact we have on our community.
As a Watch Party Host, you will invite people from your network to virtually gather for a special screening of this year's video production via Zoom or Google Meet, and then encourage guests to make a contribution to support the mission of CCMOW. We ask all hosts to share personal stories about their experiences and involvement with CCMOW to inspire guests to make a contribution.
The video is approximately 15 minutes, so a watch party can be hosted in as little as 30 minutes, or as long as you like. This is a fun and easy way to virtually unite in support of a great cause, and the best part is that you can do it from the comfort of your home!
If you are interested in hosting a watch party, please email email@example.com and we will send you additional information, including email templates to invite your friends and family, and training materials. We will also have a couple of CCMOW staff members on-call for any technical difficulties you may encounter during your watch party.
