Charleston SC – Charleston Area Seniors- Meals on Wheels of Charleston has received $4900 from the Dabo All in Team Foundation to help feed neighbors in their time of need. This grant will Sponsor a Day of meal deliveries to seniors in Charleston County.
“The ongoing support of organizations like the Dabo All in Team Foundation is crucial to serving homebound seniors in Charleston. We could not execute our mission without the helping hands of our community” said Donna Cook, Executive Director.
As an agency. CASC’s mission is “Enhancing the lives of older adults in the community- one life at a time”. This mission is carried out each day by our delivery drivers who smile, greet the client by name and hand them a hot meal. The delivery team is the heart of our mission and each member of the team is dedicated to the very best service for our clients. The foremost objective is to allow a senior to stay independent for as long as possible.
Charleston Area Senior Citizens (CASC) has been distributing Meals on Wheels to local seniors since 1967. Each weekday our team delivers more than 700 meals- our highest number of meals ever. This number has grown from 500 meals a day in 2018 to our current number of 720 in 2022. Fiscal year 22-23, CASC is on track to serve more than 210,000 meals.
The mission is to raise awareness of critical education and health issues in order to change lives of people across the state of South Carolina. The objective of our Grant Program is to provide local, South Carolina-based organizations in need of monetary support an opportunity to receive funding in order to execute projects that fit within Dabo's All In Team Foundation's mission statement: to raise awareness of critical education and health issues in order to change lives of people across the state of South Carolina. There are a number of organizations in our community, and across the state,that share our same beliefs concerning critical education and health issues. Many of these organizations have outstanding ideas and concepts on how to be a part of the solution, but are lacking the opportunity and funding to do so. The grant program was set up to give these organizations an opportunity to continue to positively impact our community.
