Answering the Call to Be There

Over the past four years, the need for our services has increased substantially, with demand for our home delivered meals hovering at 85% above pre-COVID levels. On top of that, our equipment has faced substantial wear and tear, as you can imagine, with it providing meals 365 days a year. Which is why, in 2021, we launched our Answering the Call capital campaign to raise $7 million to update machinery and increase our capacity to meet the community’s needs.

After three years of working behind the scenes to launch and secure funding, we are thrilled to announce that we have not only met but exceeded our goal by $8 million!

We have our entire Alliance to be thankful for, including our board members, individual donors, employees, and community, corporate, and government partners. We extend a huge thank you to all who helped us surpass our goal!

We have already begun making the necessary updates to our Meals-on-Wheels operations, including ordering new ovens, a production line, and vans (which you can see driving around with our new branding). Over the next few years, we will continue to make updates such as replacing several hoods and fire suppression systems to ensure kitchen safety; creating a covered walkway for clients entering our Mound Street location; purchasing generators to secure operations and food safety during power outages; updating our Cancer Screening and Support Center to better the client experience; and more.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates about the progress here at LifeCare Alliance! As always, your support allows us to continue helping people live with more hope, security, and independence.
