A Meals on Wheels lunch is always hot and always nutritious – but it doesn’t often come with a treat.
That will change today. WoodmenLife is sponsoring a special cookie to go with each of the 700 lunches Meals on Wheels will deliver this morning. WoodmenLife made a $5,000 general donation to the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging for the Meals on Wheels program, and a $1,000 donation for these treats, which is enough for an additional treat for the seniors later this year.

The Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging serves families in Douglas, Sarpy, Dodge, Cass, and Washington counties. ENOA’s role is to ensure that the older adults have access to a continuum of services that help them to remain active, independent, and in their own homes for as long as possible. ENOA serves as a gateway to aging services that already exist in the community and also operates its own programs that fill previously unmet needs in the five-county area.
Through our nutrition programs, case management services, volunteer opportunities, and
community services, ENOA’s goal is to enhance the lives of older Nebraskans who live within our service area. A further mission of the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging is to continually assess the needs of older individuals and their families and to adapt our programs to meet changing needs. By creating unique programs that fill gaps in service, ENOA helps older Nebraskans to live more independently, to live with dignity, and to remain for as long as possible in their own homes.
