The Memphis office of CBIZ MHM kicked off its 'Summer Days of Service' by participating in the "Meals on Wheels" program through the Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association (MIFA) for its first volunteer day. Our community involvement committee coordinated the event and has planned several similar volunteer days throughout the summer for our employees. A group of 8 volunteers from our office helped deliver meals this past Friday.
Before heading out on three seperate driving routes for deliveries, the group attended an information session on MIFA's vison, values and mission. The association has grown tremendously since its founding in 1968. Several organizations have grown from within its walls, such as the Mid-South Food Bank, and expanded to other locations. The MIFA "Meals on Wheels" program, with the help of up to 100 volunteers, provides 1,800 hot, nutritious lunches for homebound elderly and seniors at 22 congregate sites each weekday. This program is the organization's largest, and has been awarded the highest possible accreditation conferred by the Meals on Wheels Association of America.
