Local nonprofit organization Meals on Wheels of Greenville has launched its e-card program to help support its efforts to provide meals to Greenville homebound population, which has grown during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new e-cards include a Grandparents Day design, which may allow family members to maintain personal connections to area seniors living in a contact-free environment.
“When a family member or friend purchases a $5 e-card, whether for Grandparents Day on Sept. 13 or for another celebration, they are providing a hot, nutritious meal and a friendly volunteer check-in to one of our homebound Greenville County neighbors,” said Meals on Wheels of Greenville Executive Director Catriona Carlisle. “We are especially encouraging people, even if they don’t have living grandparents, to ‘adopt a grandparent’ and send a Grandparents Day e-card to a senior who could use a reminder that they are loved. Together, we can combat the exponential rise in homebound isolation, made worse by COVID-19.”
In addition to purchasing an e-card for a grandparent or adopting a grandparent, Meals on Wheels of Greenville is encouraging the public to consider sharing the e-card program on social media or get involved with Meals on Wheels of Greenville County.
