I Spy A Meals on Wheels Coin Can!
In the age of debit cards, Paypal accounts, and smartphone payment apps it may seem archaic to distribute coin collection cans, but the cans offer an easy way to lighten the load in your pocket or purse while reminding us that there are still many people who depend on our home-delivered nutritious meals and the warm smile of our caring volunteers. So look for our Meals on Wheels coin cans at over 100 locations throughout the county and go ahead and drop those annoying coins in. Dollar bills also fit nicely through the slots!
