Donor Information

The volunteers who deliver meals to our clients are the most visible aspect of our organization; Terre Haute Area Meals on Wheels relies heavily on financial contributions from donors such as you to pay for the meals we serve each day. 100% of every dollar you contribute stays right here in Vigo County and goes directly to this program. As you can see, your support is invaluable. Simple monetary contributions (even made on behalf of someone else), various types of planned giving, vehicle donations, in-kind gifts of goods and services, etc. are but a few of the ways in which you can play a part in furthering our work in the community.
