Support our 2021 VIRTUAL Fundraiser
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!
Never before, in the long history of our organization, have our services been more desperately needed. The individuals we serve were the hardest hit when everything shut down in March 2020. Suddenly, our clients 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 vulnerable members of our community.
Our fundraiser will provide the funds to ensure that no one in need of a meal is ever turned away.
This year, there are two primary ways you can participate: by sponsoring the event, or hosting a "watch party."
By sponsoring the annual fundraiser as a business, organization, or individual, you help to cover the cost of the event, ensuring that all funds raised go toward supporting our programs.
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.
Thank you for considering this fun and easy way to support the mission of CCMOW.
