At this season of giving, Grayson Meals on Wheels wishes to thank the Grayson community for their support during the year. During 2018, the all volunteer organization will have delivered over 9,000 hot meals to the homes of Eastern Carter County residents. The program would not be possible without the forty-five different individuals from our community who willingly contribute their their time and the use of their vehicles to deliver these meals on a Monday through Friday schedule to about thirty-five people per day. Seventeen of these individuals drive two or more routes each month. Therefore, if you desire to help with this endeavor, consider using one hour of your time by driving a route one time each month.
Grayson Meals on Wheels depends on donations to help cover the cost of the meals. Throughout the year the organization has been blessed by those in our community who gave generous one-time gifts and monthly financial support. Also, we have participated in local fund raising events that helped generate the $20,130 needed to cover the unmet cost of delivered meals. We wish to thank all who purchased our large hamburgers at the “Friday Car Shows.” Also, thanks to all who contributed to the annual “Bucket Brigade,” and our “March for Meals” Chamber of Commerce campaign. Again this year the funding from United Way of Northeast Kentucky was a great help in accomplishing our mission to our community.
