Walsh Duffield received the Meals on Wheels Corporate Volunteer Award at the Plate Expectations Event on September 21st. As an "Adopt-a-Route" partner, the staff at Walsh Duffield work as a team to take turns delivering meals every Tuesday on the West Side of Buffalo.
As a corporate sponsor of the Plate Expectations event, our team is very involved, and Ted Walsh has previously been honorary chair of this event. Stephen Mayo, also a long-term MOW supporter, has been delivering meals since 2009 and went on to join and then later lead the Plate Expectations Committee before joining the Foundation board in 2014.
In addition to the staff support, last year Walsh Duffield nominated MOW for Safeco's "Make More Happen" contest - which built up awareness and led to us winning a $3,500 donation from Safeco.
We are proud to support such a great organization within our community!
