Cutting Meals on Wheels? Say it ain’t so!

Turns out … not such a big deal.  For one thing, Meals on Wheels gets only 3% of its funding from the federal government.

Also, CNN reported that the day after Trump’s budget came out, Meals on Wheels received 50 times the typical amount of daily donations.  Volunteer sign-ups also jumped, increasing by 500%.

  • It’s almost like it can survive without 3% funding from the fed. Who could have guessed.
  • Great. This is the way charities are supposed to work. Individuals decide where their time/$$ should be spent … not Govt.
  • B-b-but I had hand wringing people wailing in my TL all day yesterday that elderly people & small children were gonna DIE from this cut?!
