The US LBM Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by leading specialty building materials distributor US LBM, will match up to $100,000 all donations made on Giving Tuesday to Meals on Wheels America, the national leadership organization supporting community-based programs across the U.S. dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger.
Contributions for the matching program can be made starting at midnight (ET) on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at mealsonwheelsamerica.org/uslbm.
“Meals on Wheels programs, and the millions of seniors they serve annually, have been hit extra hard by lingering impacts of the pandemic and historic inflation raising the costs of food, gas and other necessities,” said Meals on Wheels America Chief Development Officer Kristine Templin. “That’s why we’re so grateful for the partnership of the US LBM Foundation to provide a matching challenge to our donors on Giving Tuesday. The impact of matching every gift, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000 will be a well-supported Meals on Wheels network – uniquely positioned to serve vulnerable aging adults from hunger and isolation, all year long.”
“We’re proud to partner with Meals on Wheels America and strengthen the communities that US LBM helps build every day,” said US LBM Foundation Chairman and US LBM President and CEO L.T. Gibson. “By matching donations up to $100,000 on Giving Tuesday, we hope to inspire others to join us this holiday season in supporting Meals on Wheels and the important work they do year-round to provide warm meals, friendship and assistance to millions of seniors in need nationwide.”
