Meals on Wheels Rockland

In-Kind Gifts

Gifts or goods or services, known as "in-kind" gifts, are very much appreciated by the agency. Some examples of how the agency uses these type of gifts are listed below.

Blizzard Boxes

This emergency shelf-stable food program helps ensure that the agency's homebound recipients have a sufficient supply of non-perishable food items in case of a weather related or other type of emergency. The agency's preference is for the donation of complete "Blizzard Boxes," but donations of non-perishables food items by themselves are also gratefully accepted. Please click below for instructions on assembling the boxes.

Assembling Blizzard Boxes is a wonderful community service project for families, boy scout, girl scout, school, or other groups. Including a brief note, poem or drawing adds a special touch and makes the boxes even more special. Boxes are accepted during regular business hours at our main office at 121 West Nyack Road, Nanuet, NY.

Turkeys can be dropped off at our 121 West Nyack Road office Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. during the aforementioned months.
