UE.co is proud to be in partnership with Meals on Wheels San Diego County. The nonprofit organization ensures seniors who do not have access to fresh meals, not only receive healthy lunches and dinners, but also provide safety checks and a friendly face to talk to. Lives are frequently rescued as a result of volunteers calling emergency personnel for someone who has fallen or is in need of additional resources.
Twice a month, UE.co employees have the opportunity to deliver the fresh meals to seniors living in the surrounding downtown area. In addition to delivering thousands of meals to seniors all over San Diego County, Meals on Wheels also partners with organizations like the San Diego Humane Society to provide pet therapy dogs at visits.
“I really love that volunteering with Meals on Wheels allows me to utilize my time by giving back to the San Diego community. Seeing all the smiling seniors was very rewarding, and it’s fun to develop a relationship with them,” said Trish Reifenstahl, Manager of UE.co’s ZipQuote.
