Placemats for Meals on Wheels Program


Over the past few months Capitol Quilters and Clear Creek Quilters combined their efforts to make more than 450 placemats for the Carson City Meals on Wheels Program.
The colorful placemats, made to cheer home-bound clients, will be distributed to the Meals on Wheels clients during the coming holidays along with their delivered meals.
Warren Bottino, elder resource advocate for the Carson City Senior Center, indicated that the program serves approximately 360 clients at any one time. In 2020, more than 110,000 meals were delivered to homebound clients.
Meals on Wheels delivers daily fresh meals during the week and frozen meals for weekends and holidays to seniors, age 60 and older, who are homebound due to a medical condition, hardship in meal preparation, or isolated due to location. Not only does Meals on Wheels provide a hot and nutritious meal, the program serves as an essential welfare check on vulnerable seniors whose only visitor tends to be the driver delivering the meal.
Program participants receive additional support to remain in there home by the Carson City Senior Center including housing assistance, utility waivers, legal assistance, durable medical equipment, caregivers, transportation, supplemental food and more.
Capitol Quilters meets the first and third Mondays at 6:30 p.m. in the Joshua Tree Room at the Carson Senior Center. Work sessions are the second and fourth Wednesdays at 9 a.m. in the Joshua Tree Room.
