Corporate Engagement

Partnering with Meals on Wheels Western Michigan can be a great way for your company or business to increase your community involvement and employee engagement. Working together to help local seniors will be sure to boost your employee morale!

We would love to work with your organization to create a customized engagement plan that could include a volunteer opportunity, tour, event sponsorship, or any of the opportunities outlined below. 

“Whether it’s sealing and packaging frozen meals in the kitchen, packing up the Emergency Kits in an assembly line, or preparing boxes and cutting cases for the next volunteer group, our teams have always had a good time. It’s enriching to know that we’re helping to make a difference for the seniors in our community.” – Nicolas K. of SpartanNash

Sponsorships

We are excited to offer a Community Partnership opportunity where you can make one financial commitment for the year and be recognized at all our events. This partnership includes incentives like year-round community exposure and employee engagement activities. You can also choose to sponsor just one event if that is your preference. We have two major fundraising events, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. Michelle, our Director of Philanthropy, is here to answer any questions you might have at (616) 459-3111 x 112 or mbottrall@mowwm.org.

Volunteering

We love our corporate volunteer groups! Whether helping to deliver meals, packing up emergency boxes on an assembly line, or working in the kitchen scooping up meals, we can be sure to find an opportunity that fits your group size and interests. It’s a great way to see our state-of-the-art facility and learn about senior hunger while making a huge difference for the most vulnerable in our community. Krissy, our Volunteer Manager, can be reached at kthomas@mowwm.org or (616) 459-3111 x 121.

Food & Fund Drives

There are tons of fun ways to encourage your employees or clients to support local seniors in need! Try hosting a holiday food drive, a virtual fund drive, a special event, or something as simple as a “Jeans Day” to benefit MOWWM. With so many people working from home, you could even host a virtual happy hour with your coworkers and donate the $10 you would normally spend on a cocktail. That $10 can provide 20 pieces of fruit and 20 cartons of milk to local homebound seniors! Lydia, our Donor Stewardship and Events Coordinator, would love to brainstorm with you! She can be reached at lvanderhill@mowwm.org or (616) 459-3111 x 139.

Employee Giving & Matching

Consider offering automatic payroll deductions or matching gift programs for your employees! By making it easy to give, or doubling employee donations, you can make a huge difference for local seniors. We would be thrilled to come talk to your employees about Meals on Wheels Western Michigan, and provide whatever you need. Please let us know if this is something you are interested in! Contact Lydia at lvanderhill@mowwm.org or (616) 459-3111 x 139 for more info.

Cause Marketing

Hold a special campaign and donate a portion of your sales to Meals on Wheels Western Michigan! Customers love knowing their purchase helps the community and we would be happy to spread the word through our social media channels. Just $0.50 can supply a carton of milk and a piece of fresh fruit to a homebound senior! You could also consider asking your customers to donate through a register round-up. Small actions add up to a big difference for local seniors! Lydia, Donor Stewardship & Events Coordinator, will help make your campaign a success. She can be reached at lvanderhill@mowwm.org or (616) 459-3111 x 139.

Corporate Donations

Support our mission and join the fight against hunger and isolation in local seniors. Just $100 can provide home-delivered meals to a senior for an entire month! Your financial and in-kind contributions can provide life-saving services to the most vulnerable in our community. We would love to invite you for a check presentation and give you a tour! 

Thank you 2020 Community Partners!
