2014 Annual Gratitude Report

The mission of Meals on Wheels is to deliver nutritious meals to those in need with the support of community volunteers.

More than 345,000 Food is life. For centuries we have turned to food to substantiate life, recover from illness, and celebrate life’s events. Food is a part of our everyday life. In Maslow’s hierarchy of need, food is part of the physiological needs that if not met, the human body cannot function and will ultimately fail. Physiological needs are thought to be the most important and should be met first. Food is essential to life. Humans need to love and be loved by others. Social isolation impacts not only the mental well-being of an individual, but the overall health. Do you hug someone goodbye when you leave for work? Do you cheer on your kids or grandkids at sporting events? Do you eat dinner with family members? Think of how many times you interact with others in just one day. Now imagine interacting with only one other human once a day. Volunteers are that interaction, delivering love, smiles, and food.

In 2014, Meals on Wheels delivered more than 345,000 meals, more than 345,000 smiles, and more than 345,000 moments of caring for someone in our community. In 2014, you impacted your community over 345,000 times. You made a difference and we thank you for this.

Donor Story I have Meals on Wheels in my trust, and it feels good to be able to do that. -Frank Baccino

Everyone has a story about how they came to love Meals on Wheels. One such story that we want to share with you, is the story of how Frank Baccino became part

of the Meals on Wheels family. He was happy to share precious family memories that have forever connected him with our mission.

My favorite memory of my mom, was just how close we were toward the end, when I had to care for her. My mom loved to cook, and did so until she was 94 years old, then her heart weakened. When she could no longer cook, I signed her up for Meals on Wheels. She loved the food & the company. When I was 5 weeks old, I had to have major surgery, and wasn’t expected to live. I think that experience always bonded me with my mother. She took such good care of me, I was happy to take care of her later in her life. We enjoyed the same meals and same television shows - the simple things in life, the everyday things. Toward the end of her life, I took her back to Austria to her hometown of Linz. She was in her 80s. I was amazed that she could still speak the language. I will always remember that trip. I think you always have to look for needs and help when you can. I believe in Meals on Wheels and what you’re doing. I have Meals on Wheels in my trust, and it feels good to be able to do that. If people didn’t have meals, they wouldn’t have proper nutrition and their health would go down. And some people don’t have anyone. I have had a blessed life.

Client Story The person who delivers your meal is someone who genuinely cares about you. - Stacey Clayton

When you hear the story of how Stacey Clayton and his wife came to need Meals on Wheels, you can’t help but be awestruck at the grace shown through great adversity. Born and raised in Chicago, Stacey commuted back and forth to United States Steel for his job as an overhead crane operator for many years. When his job was cut in 1991, Stacey and his wife settled in Northwest Indiana. Five years later, Stacey made a late night trip to a local convenience store to purchase milk and other items when he was approached by a young man demanding money from him. Stacey pulled two dollars from his pocket and gave it to the young man. Despite Stacey’s compliance, the young man opened fire on him, striking him in the arm and thigh leaving him with a spinal cord injury. This incident left Stacey as a paraplegic. A few years later, his wife also became disabled. To listen to Stacey tell this story, you would be impressed with the manner of his voice and sense of peace for

what he has been through. He is a spiritual man that believes everyone is here on Earth for a purpose and should comfort and aid each other. This outlook about life is why he loves Meals on Wheels. He mentioned that you get to know the delivery drivers like family and he is comforted knowing that someone genuinely cares for his well-being and that of his wife. He knows that he and his wife are not only receiving a nutritious meals, but the well-being check ensures his peace of mind. Stacey Clayton says thank you for your support of Meals on Wheels. We have been part of his life for 13 years and he continues to be grateful for the Meals on Wheels program that is made possible by generous donors like you.
