VC donates $4,700 to Meals on Wheels from Victoria Empty Bowls fundraiser

The Feb. 9 Victoria Empty Bowls event hosted by Victoria College raised $19,600 for local agencies fighting hunger in the Crossroads.

A donation of $4,700 was recently given to the Victoria County Senior Citizens Association’s Meals on Wheels Program. Pictured holding the $4,700 check is Victoria County Senior Citizens Association Executive Director Dan Williams-Capone.

“This money is extremely timely as we have seen an 82-percent increase in the number of meals we’re delivering due to COVID-19,” Williams-Capone said. “Federal funding takes time to trickle down to Victoria, so this really helps us meet the expenses happening now.”
