today's action Write a Note to a Mother Like Alicia

Alicia is 101 years old—and like many of the homebound elderly New Yorkers Citymeals-on-Wheels nourishes, she is a mother.

Sadly, at her advanced age, Alicia has experienced something no mother should go through: she has outlived her own child. She now spends Mother's Day alone, remembering past holidays filled with the love and warmth of family.

Citymeals delivers nutritious meals and human companionship to 18,000 frail aged New Yorkers—and you can help them provide a meaningful gift to meal recipients like Alicia on Mother's Day.

For today's Daily Action, write a special note to one of your isolated elderly neighbors and it will be hand-delivered with their meal. Your kind words will warm the heart of a vulnerable older New Yorker on Mother's Day.
