Mobile Meals of Chickasha recently sent out over 100 letters asking for help in their mission to feed local residents.
However, the letter contained a typo regarding the Mobile Meals' treasurer's phone number. The correct phone number is 405-224-6225.
For those who did not receive the letter or who are unaware of what Mobile Meals does for the local community, please read on.
Mobile Meals has been run by volunteers for more than 30 years, helping those who are often low income, elderly, unable to grocery shop and prepare food. These recipients do not qualify for government assistance in Chickasha. According to Mobile Meals, many of their recipients are referred by doctors and hospices.
Volunteers use their own transportation to deliver a hot meal prepared by the Grady Memorial Hospital Cafeteria. They are asked to pay the amount charged per meal by the cafeteria, however only a fraction of recipients are able to pay the full amount.
Mobile Meals of Chickasha is asking the local community to consider donating to this charity. All contributions go to the cost of meals and are tax deductible.
The address for mailing a donation is Joyce Belville, Treasurer, 1602 W. Tennessee Ave., Chickasha, OK 73018.
