Mr. Smythe goes to Washington
 

Jeff Smythe, MOWA’s Executive Director just returned from a busy trip to Washington DC.  There he met with Ellie Hollander, CEO of Meals on Wheels America and directors from other Meals on Wheels programs across America.  Jeff, along with Ellie and several others met with Senators and Representatives on Capitol Hill to advocate for seniors and their unique needs.
 
Busy Spring for Meals On Wheels Atlanta Events!

Midnight in Paris
We celebrated our inaugural Midnight in Paris event with Atlanta Young Professionals on Friday, April 17, 2015.  The night was a success with music by Blair Crimmins and the Hookers, gambling and raffle prizes.  The event raised over $12,000 allowing 2100 meals to be delivered to seniors in need.  Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us!



A Meal to Remember Kickoff Luncheon
The St. Regis Atlanta hosted our AMTR Kickoff Luncheon on Thursday, April 23, 2015.  Legendary Events provided a beautiful backdrop and Chef Trevino outdid himself with delicious French inspired bites!  Our co-chairs Michelle Crosland, Marsha Middleton and Louise Sams did a wonderful job getting everyone excited for an unforgettable night on Friday, November 6, 2015!

Sunday Suppers
April 26 and May 3 were both successful nights for our 4th Annual Sunday Supper series.  We’re lucky to have dedicated chefs and hosts to provide one-of-a-kind dining experiences to our supporters.  There is still time to attend a dinner on Sunday, May 17.  Purchase tickets here!

 
Fate
 

On April 28th Auburn Avenue and Bethlehem Senior Center’s Administrative Aids held a Bible Trivia Challenge between the two centers at Bethlehem Senior Center.   In an effort to meet new friends and intermingle between the two centers, each attendee had to sit by someone from another center.  As and icebreaker the participants had to introduce themselves to their seat partner and tell something interesting about themselves.  As fate would have it Ms. Carolyn Sterling of Auburn Ave. sat next to her aunt, Ms. Rosa Stokes of Bethlehem whom she had not seen in twenty seven years!  What an amazing coincidence and family reunion.

Volunteer Spotlight - Buckhead Church

Buckhead Church came to help us again this year for their annual "Do.justice Day" with 30 hardworking volunteers. "Do.justice Day" is a yearly event where 850 members of Buckhead Church join together to celebrate and serve Atlanta. It is a day of helping their neighbors, and it is an opportunity to bring change to their city in real and tangible ways. We were so pleased that Do.justice volunteers chose Meals On Wheels Atlanta as one of their volunteer sites.  Their volunteers helped deliver meals to 77 of our clients and made over 100 Mother's Day Cards to give out later this month. We couldn’t be more pleased with the efforts they put in to help us. Thank you very much Buckhead Church for all that you do for our Atlanta seniors.

 
Special Visitors

Last month, on separate occasions, we greeted Fulton County District 4 Commissioner Joan P. Garner and Mr. Paul Morris, President of the Atlanta BeltLine.  While touring our newly renovated building, they met with our seniors at the Northside Activity Center, and talked with our staff.  Afterwards, in honor of MOWA’s 50th Anniversary, both took time to deliver meals to some of our home bound seniors.  Thank you Commissioner Garner and Mr. Morris for all you do for our City.
