On Wednesday, June 29 Sycuan Casino Resort presented a $13,000 donation to Meals on Wheels San Diego in support of their 2022 Fishing for Charity event.

Sycuan has been a proud partner of Meals on Wheels San Diego since 2010 and a longtime supporter of the Fishing for Charity event. This year, The Shogun boat will depart in July and head into international waters for a fishing voyage like no other. All fish captured during this trip will be taken back to the Meals on Wheels organization to be used in future recipes in support of their mission.

About Meals on Wheels:

Meals on Wheels is the only agency providing meals for 7 days a week, including holidays. Additionally, we cover the entire county, including delivery into the over 3,049 square miles of rural and unincorporated areas. Meals on Wheels San Diego County subsidizes 60% of the costs for meals, delivery, and other services provided, regardless of a senior’s ability to pay.

Distributing home-delivered meals and safety checks could not be accomplished without the help of our very large and caring volunteer workforce who deliver meals with a hug and a smile and ensure our homebound seniors are OK. Frequently the volunteer may be the only person the senior sees all day, providing human contact and a safety net, particularly for those seniors living alone. Lives are saved nearly every week as a result of acquiring the proper emergency personnel for someone who has fallen, had a stroke, or is simply in need of additional resources.
