Light the Night for Senior Hunger is the year-end fundraising campaign for Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana (MOW). Every $25 donation lights a luminary at MOW from November 29 – January 4 2019. Thanks to a donation from NIPSCO, every donation of $50 or more will be matched up to $10,000.
Luminaries shine on the MOW campus as a symbol of hope for the nutrition, health, and wellbeing of NWI seniors. The goal is to raise $65,000 to deliver more than 13,000 meals and wellness checks. New this year is a kickoff event with cookies and cocoa, a chance to light a luminary, share words of hope, and a Holiday Lights Display at MOW at the corner of 84th and Virginia in Merrillville.
