Meals on Wheels Fundraiser

"Kids Care Too" will begin fundraising for the Chino Valley Meals on Wheels Program again.

Last year the kids created gift bags for all seniors who receive Meals on Wheels in the Chino Valley area.

This year they are asking for the community's help in raising either money used to buy items for the senior or donate items to put into the gift bags.

Anyone who would like to help can call Cindy at 928-830-0195 or 928-277-2835.

All kids also are welcome to participate in creating the gift bags or helping deliver the gifts on Christmas Eve.
