IBEW 1245’s Reno-Sparks Retirees Club made a $350 donation to support the Washoe County Meals on Wheels program. The matching funds used for this donation were approved by IBEW 1245’s executive board.
Meals on Wheels is dedicated to addressing senior isolation and hunger. This network serves virtually every community in America and, along with more than two million staff and volunteers, delivers the nutritious meals, friendly visits and safety checks that enable America’s seniors to live nourished lives with independence and dignity.

“On behalf of Washoe County Senior Services, I would like to thank you both for your very generous donation of $350 to the Meals on Wheels Home Delivered Meal Program,” Senior Services Coordinator Abby Willrich wrote in a letter to the union. “Your continued support of two of Washoe County’s Human Services most visible programs, the annual Fan Drive in partnership with KOLO TV and the Meals on Wheels Program, has proven again to contribute to the success of both programs. Your members’ generosity and focus on improving the lives of many seniors in the community of Washoe County does not go unnoticed. Thank you again to everyone at IBEW Local 1245, from all of us here at Washoe County Senior Services, for making a difference in our Washoe County community with your donation. Your generosity and participation are appreciated by many.”
