We would like to thank the Windsor Foundation for selecting us as a grant recipient. The Windsor Foundation was established as a private foundation in 1960. Founder, Sidney Albert Windsor, supported youth and seniors’ initiatives in the Maritimes. The legacy lives on even after his death. Mr. Windsor was born and educated in New Brunswick and was passionate about supporting initiatives in the Maritime Provinces.

We are grateful for the generous contribution this organization has made to Meals on Wheels of Fredericton. The funds will be of tremendous help as we built and supplied our own kitchen, and the additional operational costs we incurred.

The success of our kitchen project is allowing us to continue to meet the growing need for our service. One aspect that had been of concern in our decision to establish our own kitchen facility was the potential for a power loss given the uncertainty of New Brunswick weather conditions. In addition to assistance with our operational needs, the funds provided by the Windsor Foundation grant have made it possible for us to purchase a back-up power source to generate electricity in the event of a power outage. With the help of this very generous grant, we are now able to make a significant number of our meals in-house in our new facility and can be safely reassured that we can continue to operate if the city experiences power outages.

The Fredericton Direct Charge CO-OP has been a tremendous supporter of Meals
on Wheels of Fredericton for many years. The Co-op Community Fund was established in August of 2013. Members of the Co-op are given the opportunity to purchase a 50/50 ticket at the checkout for $ 2.00. Proceeds from 50% of this draw are awarded to local charitable organizations serving the community. Once again this year we were selected as one of the Community Fund Recipients.

We are extremely thankful for this very generous support. The funds assist us in meeting the operational costs associated with providing our much-needed service to Fredericton and the surrounding area. The spirit of generosity of the members of the
Direct Charge Co-op is exemplary, and the ongoing support of local charities is of great significance.
