Easter Cookies Fundraiser Will Help 800 Residents

In Local

Community Care Northumberland is delighted to announce that their Easter Cookies fundraiser sold an astounding 800 boxes and brought in $16,000 – enough to ensure that 800 Northumberland residents will have access to nutritious meals through their Meals On Wheels program.

Providing vital sustenance to seniors and adults with disabilities who otherwise might have difficulty food-shopping and cooking for themselves, Meals On Wheels has long been one of the key programs offered by CCN. Proceeds from the generous community support of this recent fundraiser will help ensure these individuals do not go hungry.

“We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire Northumberland community for their unwavering support, and to Lucy at Roda’s Kitchen for her exceptional dedication to this cause,” CCN Manager of Nutrition Services Sheri Birney said in the press release.

“We also express our deepest appreciation to our dedicated staff and volunteers, whose tireless efforts have made this amazing achievement possible. Together, we have made a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most.”

This vital service delivers both hot meals – which are prepared in local communities and delivered fresh at the noon hour several days a week – and frozen meals which are easy to prepare and accommodate several diet types, all delivered by CCN volunteers and staff members. In the 2022-2023 year, 40,421 meals were delivered to 636 clients throughout Northumberland.

With this year’s fundraising success under their belt, CCN is already making plans for next year’s Easter Cookies fundraiser, “with eager anticipation for continued community support and collective impact.”
