Honor Your Grandparent on Grandparents Day
September 8, 2013
At 95-years-young, Miss Lully is surrounded by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. Imagine five generations of love! Monthly, the family holds “Grandma’s 2nd Saturday” and meets for breakfast at a local restaurant. What a wonderful way to way to honor a grandparent.
Unfortunately, there are other seniors in our community that don’t receive that love. Many are alone with empty cupboards and no way to care for themselves. More than 4,500 local seniors are waiting – waiting for a meal, waiting for companionship, waiting for someone to care. After a lifetime of hard work and service, our seniors shouldn’t have to wait for basic needs like these. Won’t you help us in our mission to put “seniors first”?
Honor or remember your grandparent this Grandparents Day with a gift toward helping a senior in need.

7th Annual High Tea & Hats
February 16, 2014
Mark your calendar for the 7th Annual High Tea & Hats event to be held at The Peabody Orlando on Sunday, February 16, 2014! .
The day will be filled with delights and surprises as guests bid on items in the silent auction and wait to see if their numbers are called in the chance auction. Start picking out your favorite High Tea Hat and get ready to show it off and win a trophy in the annual Hat Parade! Come join in the festivities and help support seniors living in Orange and Seminole counties!
Be a Meals On Wheels Volunteer Driver
Approximately 300 volunteers are needed to deliver 5,020 meals each week in Orange County! The need for volunteers is growing every day, as more seniors turn to Meals On Wheels to help them remain independent and in their own homes. Most of our volunteers deliver meals one day a week, with routes that will take no longer than two hours to complete. Volunteer with your children or grandchildren! Meals On Wheels is a wonderful way to help teach responsibility and the importance of community service.
Create a Delivery Team
“Adopt-A-Route” is a simple way for corporations, church groups, social and service clubs to give back to the community. Seniors First will work with your company or organization to create a tailored meal route that will support our seniors and promote team building. Those who “Adopt-A-Route” will take on the delivery requirements of one route, one day a week (Mon-Fri) by providing a team of two for no more than two hours (between 9am and noon).
