CLS realizes the key to a greener planet is in all of our hands and is proud of its mission to promote earth-friendly initiatives that relate to conservation and preservation and this includes ridesharing! That’s why when the opportunity recently arose to give back to the community and include ridesharing, CLS was all in!
Members packed and delivered meals to the beloved seniors in our community for Meals on Wheels Atlanta (MOWA) on Saturday, July 10. With two to three members per car, CLS sisters motored around to assigned residences to deliver meals.
MOWA is making a difference in metro Atlanta by supporting senior independence through meals, shelter, education, and community. Founded in 1965 to support seniors struggling with poverty, food insecurity, and social isolation, MOWA has grown from a small soup kitchen to an organization serving more than 600,000 meals each year throughout the Atlanta area. They have also expanded their program offerings to respond to other critical needs in the community. They now offer multiple services to support both older adults and veterans, including home-delivered and congregate meals, home repair services, and a food pantry for both seniors and their pets. Amazing!
What a great morning! Through this endeavor, when CLS members ride together to volunteer, they promote a friendly environment by improving air quality, conserving non-renewable energy resources and saving time all while giving back. In addition, they foster sisterhood and friendship! It’s a win-win-win situation! Now that’s Classy!
