 Honor A Loved One with a Donation to Kit Clark's Meals on Wheels Program!
 
Are you looking for the perfect gift for someone special? Consider the gift of giving with Kit Clark Senior Services! Donate to Kit Clark's Meals on Wheels program in honor of someone special, and they'll receive a lovely card informing them of the donation in their name.
 
Kit Clark Senior Services delivers 1,800 meals on a daily basis to homebound seniors throughout Greater Boston. This year, when you donate to the KCSS Nutrition/Meals on Wheels Program, you'll be helping seniors get their daily nutrition, but you'll also help them retain the independence that comes from living in one's own home.
 
Your donation of: 
$7 will provide one meal to a homebound senior 
$35 will provide one week of meals to a homebound senior 
$140 will provide one month of meals to a homebound senior
 
This gift of sharing not only feeds the stomach, but nourishes the soul. The daily visit from a Meals on Wheels driver brings with it not only a meal, but a friendly word and a smiling face.

Once there, enter the amount you wish to donate (in multiples of $7), your personal information, and include in the Comment box the words "Please send cards to," along with the names and addresses of those you wish to honor. We will then send each of them a lovely card informing them of the generous gift that's been made in their honor!

Mick Monster Mash 5K Dash a Halloween Smash for Kit Clark Senior Services!
 
While the kids were getting ready for trick-or-treating this Halloween, it was nothing but treats at Mick Morgan's Irish Pub in Sharon--site of the first annual Mick Monster Mash 5K Dash for Kit Clark Senior Services. The benefit 5K took place Saturday, October 31, and raised more than $25,000 for Kit Clark.
 
Nearly 200 runners gathered together--many outfitted in funny, freaky and fierce costumes befitting the season--to run or walk a 5K course through neighboring Walpole. The event featured family-friendly music and entertainment at the start/finish line at Mick Morgan's, and a grand time was had by all, as the generous runners and supporters made donations that will go toward Kit Clark’s extensive range of programs and services for Boston-area seniors.
 
Our profound thanks to our Presenting Partner, Mick Morgan's Irish Pub; our Finish Line Sponsor, Liberty Bay Credit Union; and all our generous sponsors for their support of this great event. And thank you to all those who ran, and those who cheered them on!
 
Kit Clark Supporters Go the Distance at Elsie Frank 5K 2015!
 
On Saturday, May 30 hundreds of supporters of Kit Clark Senior Services gathered at Pope John Paul II Park in Dorchester for the ninth annual Elsie Frank 5K. Some came to run, some to walk; some came to cheer their young children on in the first-ever Elsie’s Kids Fun Run; and some came with their senior family members who receive vital services each day from Kit Clark Senior Services in homes all across Boston. All were treated to a beautiful sun-drenched summer day and a great vibe, as they laced up their sneakers and helped raise more than $30,000 to support Kit Clark’s vision of long, healthy and independent lives for seniors.
 
Each year, Kit Clark and Bay Cove pay tribute to Elsie Frank, beloved and inspirational mother of former Congressman Barney Frank, who was a passionate champion for elders. Mrs. Frank served as President of the Massachusetts Association of Older Americans and was a delegate to President Clinton’s White House Council on Aging. The annual Elsie Frank 5K celebrates her work on behalf of all seniors, with all proceeds benefiting Kit Clark Senior Services.
