MEALS ON WHEELS
“Together, We Can Deliver” - That is the tagline for the Meals on Wheels network made up of over 5,000 community-based programs across the United States as the organization addresses the issues of senior hunger and isolation. This 501(C)(3) recognizes that seniors are at greater risk of hunger and malnutrition, that the senior population is growing and changing rapidly, and that older Americans are living longer with less money – all enhancing the value from the Meals on Wheels program which starts with a meal and delivers so much more.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
From a concept of “partnership in housing” developed in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller to today, Habitat for Humanity has become a dream come true in addressing the need of poor housing conditions. In all the 50 United States and in over 70 countries, more than 46 million people have achieved strength, stability and independence with adequate shelter and decent affordable homes through the Habitat for Humanity programs. While working alongside volunteers, homeowners build their own homes and pay an affordable mortgage.

ROCK STEADY BOXING
Let’s kick off 2023 with a question to get your mind thinking: What do Michael J. Fox, Alan Alda, Neil Diamond, Billy Graham, George H.W. Bush, and Muhammad Ali all have or have had in common?

And the “winner” this month as the recipient of our CTE Gives Back! charity dollars is Rock Steady Boxing. This 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is focused on giving hope to people with Parkinson’s disease by using a non-contact boxing based fitness curriculum to improve their quality of life.
