Citi Community Development (CCD) will once again partner with the local Meals on Wheels program to sponsor and deliver meals to homebound seniors in the Greater San Antonio area.
As in previous years, Citi is providing a $10,000 contribution to support the preparation of more than 2,000 meals. Then on December 13th, over 400 Citi employees will volunteer in pairs to deliver midday meals to homebound seniors nearby.
“This is the fifth year that Citi has partnered with Meals on Wheels of San Antonio and it’s one of our favorite local activities,” said Norman L. Wright, Site President, Citi San Antonio. “It is part of what we call ‘Citi Serves San Antonio’ and, in a broader sense, it reflects the fundamental commitment that all of us at Citi embrace, to give back to our communities.”
“Citi has been a great partner,” said Sharon Baughman, Executive Director of Christian Senior Services. “They continue to support our mission year after year and it is a true testament of their dedication to end senior hunger here in San Antonio.”
The event will take place at the Citibank Client Service Center (100 Citibank Drive, San Antonio, TX 78245) beginning at 10:30 AM. On-site media coverage is requested.

About Meals on Wheels of San Antonio
Meals on Wheel of San Antonio, a program of Christian Senior Services, prepares and delivers over 3,700 nutritious meals each weekday to homebound seniors living in Bexar County. With a registered dietitian on staff, our meals are often the primary source of daily nutrition received by our recipients. In addition, personal contact with our volunteers and staff drivers combats loneliness and can often provide opportunities for early intervention in life-threatening situations. Last year, the program provided over 890,000 meals to senior residents of Bexar County. To learn more about the organization, visit http://www.christianseniorservices.org.
