The holidays are often a time of loneliness for homebound seniors, who can feel forgotten while others celebrate happy traditions with family. You can change that.

The Meals on Wheels Orange County Holiday Gift Program is dedicated to helping the most vulnerable older adults feel loved and appreciated. For many, this gift will be the only present they receive this holiday season.  Not only does it provide everyday necessities that recipients can’t always afford or get themselves, but this gift also brings holiday cheer and smiles. This holiday season, your elderly neighbors need you more than ever!


This is an easy and thoughtful way to show love to your community! Along with individuals and families, we also partner with churches, corporations, and businesses to brighten a senior’s holiday season. You can do one or more of the following to make a difference today:

Purchase any of the items on our Amazon Wishlist, which will be shipped directly to us. Dedicated volunteers will distribute these to local seniors.

Cover the cost of a special holiday meal. Just $10 will provide a heartwarming nutritious meal to a senior in need this holiday season.

“Hello, my first name is Daski, and I did get my gift from Meals on Wheels Orange County!  I love, love, love it.  Thank you one and all so very much.  You are the greatest!  My message is a great big thank you, thank you, thank you!  I love you all and I don’t even know you!”


“Hi There, this is Stacy. My mother is unable, due to dementia, to make this call.  It’s so thoughtful with the holiday—I’m starting to get emotional—I’m just very, very grateful for people like you that do such wonderful things.  My mom was very, very excited about her gift.  Happy holiday, and Merry Christmas.  God bless you all.”
