Meals on Wheels

THE TASK

Create a meaningful "We Care" package for Meals on Wheels recipients. The holidays can be a challenging time for those confined to their homes. 

THE RECIPIENT

Meals on Wheels delivers these special gift bags to seniors to say, “We Care.” Coupled with a personal note it is a sure way to brighten someone’s day and say “you are not forgotten.”

THE REASON

During the holidays, birthdays, or when seniors are just feeling down, Meals on Wheels uses these special "We Care" packages to brighten the day of the seniors they serve. 

THE INSTRUCTIONS

These are the instructions for "We Care" Kits for Meals on Wheels. Questions? Email us at hey@kyndhub.com
