Opportunities for corporate partners include:
Meal Center Naming Rights
The Meal Center, which produces nearly a half a million dollars a year, is located on India Street and is highly visible from the 5 freeway, across from the San Diego airport exit. This location receives a tremendous amount of media coverage, as well as drive-by traffic easily seen by daily commuters and travelers going to and from the San Diego International Airport. This is an ideal opportunity for an organization that wishes to co-brand with a well-respected cause, Meals-on-Wheels San Diego County.
Throughout the year, Meals on Wheels San Diego holds fundraising events that help raise the necessary funds to sustain our program. The following events have sponsorship opportunities:
- Wiggin’ Out for San Diego Seniors – 5k Walk/Run – Crown Point Park in Pacific Beach - held yearly in Spring
- Annual Gala – Our largest fundraising event of the year with approximately 400 guests in attendance - held yearly in Summer
- Fishing for Charity – Sponsor Meals on Wheels CEO, Debbie Case, and/or join her in this one and a half day sports fishing event aboard the 92’ Shogun - Held yearly in Summer
- Holiday Concert – A North County concert performed by the Coastal Communities Concert Band - held yearly in December
Route Sponsorships - Our vans travel over 30,000 miles a year all over San Diego freeways! For a mere $1,500 per year, your logo on the back window of our van tells freeway travelers just how much you care about homebound San Diego seniors and your community.
Lunch Box Sponsorships - $5,000 Labels are printed with your logo on the stadium boxes that accompany all lunches for 6 months.
Meal Sponsorships - Special holiday meals are created for Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and/or Christmas/Hanukkah/New Year’s, etc. Your organization’s logo will appear on the gifted meals along with a company spokesperson to be part of TV/Media coverage typically acquired for the holiday. Often media coverage includes company team members delivering meals to a few seniors homes during the sponsorship.
$5,000 pays for meals delivered one day - 1428 meals (lunch and dinner)
$10,000 pays for meals delivered for two days - 2,857 typically delivered over two days (lunch and dinner)
Companies and groups often “Adopt-a-Route” and deliver meals to homebound seniors near their organization or workplace and rotate amongst their group to deliver.
Deliveries occur between 10:30 and 1:30pm and a monthly commitment of 2 to 3 times is all it takes!
“We Care” Packages
Organizations may also create “We Care” packages, cards and place-mats to deliver to our seniors. Every holiday, birthday and even for just a “pick-me-up”, volunteers deliver these gift bags full of items seniors love. Click HERE for the “We Care Packages flyer to see the items we can accept.
