Meals on Wheels in Greater New Brunswick & Hyatt Regency New Brunswick
More than just a meal, Meals on Wheels in Greater New Brunswick (MOWGNB) has served homebound seniors in New Brunswick and the surrounding community for over 40 years. Every weekday, we deliver two nutritionally beneficial meals regardless of our clients’ ability to pay. Our volunteers also regularly interact with our clients, giving social contact and a friendly check-in for individuals that often do not see others daily. Meals on Wheels can be the difference between a senior remaining in their own home or being forced into an assisted living facility.
The team at Hyatt Regency New Brunswick have been supporters of MOWGNB for several years. Kristine Blake, Director of Sales, Marketing and Events, has been a board member for almost three years and meets on a monthly basis with the rest of our volunteer board to assess the direction and progress of the agency. Staff at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick volunteer to deliver meals for clients which is crucial in maintaining our weekday service.
In addition, the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick has hosted a number of functions for MOWGNB. For the past three years we have hosted both our annual volunteer appreciation luncheon and wine tasting fundraiser. Beyond the space, the printing and advertising offered by Hyatt Regency New Brunswick have been extremely helpful in proving and running successful events for us and our guests. The partnership with Hyatt Regency New Brunswick speaks volumes to their appreciation for MOWGNB’s mission and what they do to give back to the New Brunswick community.
The Hyatt Community Grant will be used to prepare and deliver over 30,000 nutritionally beneficial meals to our 90 annual clients in 2017! Specifically, funds will be used towards food and staff costs for hot, cold and emergency meals that we regularly serve to our clients.
