WISE Conference donation to Meals on Wheels tops $3,000
MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Texas -- The Wise Conference adopted the Montgomery County Meals On Wheels for their 5th Annual Conference. The Meals On Wheels donation boxes we placed throughout the county collected $350.58, with the conference proceeds the check presentation totaled $3850.58. WISE is focused on giving back to local charity organizations in our community. Each year, the WISE Conference planning committee chooses at least one Montgomery County charity to acknowledge at the conference and give a portion of the proceeds.
With the ongoing population growth in the area, the WISE Conference’s goal is to bring awareness and support to local nonprofits that continuously use the donation to make a difference. “We want to bring attention to what this well-deserving charity does for seniors in our community, and we are proud to donate a portion of our proceeds to Meals on Wheels Montgomery County,” said Dawn Candy, the 5th Annual WISE Conference coordinator. “The WISE Conference is more than a women’s business conference – we believe in giving back to those who could use a helping hand, and we will continue to support our community.”
Meals on Wheels Montgomery County exists to improve the lives of homebound seniors and help keep them out of costly nursing homes and hospitals. Serving more than 500 meals each weekday, Meals on Wheels Montgomery County helps our aging neighbors remain well nourished, connected to the community, and independent within the comfort of their own home.
Meals on Wheels of Montgomery County Director of Development, Bonnie Pfrenger, had this to say about her experience with WISE, “It was wonderful working together with WISE and the amazing women associated with the organization. They work tirelessly at helping other business women grow and reach their potential. They are inspiring. It was an honor to work with them and be a part of this amazing conference.” For more information about donating to Meals on Wheels, please contact her at Bonnie@mowmc.org.
