Ways to Give
Shop and give! Every time you shop at your neighborhood Kroger or Tom Thumb or make a purchase on Amazon.com, a percentage of your purchases can be donated to VNA. Read the information below to link your Kroger and Tom Thumb cards to giving at VNA or directions on how to donate to VNA when you buy from Amazon. This is a great way to support VNA’s mission to help seniors age with dignity and independence at home. Giving couldn’t be easier!

4. JOIN THE FAN AND HEATER CLUB!
Anyone who’s ever lived in Texas knows how hot the summers can be and how quickly winter arrives! The summer months are some of the most dangerous for our elderly neighbors, and we always help keep them warm during the winter. We’re challenging our generous supporters to help us keep them comfortable throughout the year by providing box fans in the summer and heaters in the winter. You can purchase a fan/heater on our Amazon Wishlist (below) or visit our easy, secure donation page here:
5. PURCHASE A WISH LIST ITEM
Throughout the year we receive many requests from VNA Meals on Wheels clients for items such as box fans, space heaters, and adult diapers. In addition, we provide non-clinical items, such as sheets for hospital beds, for hospice patients. VNA also provides all Meals on Wheels clients and Hospice patients with individually wrapped toiletry items in a hand-decorated holiday gift bag on Christmas morning through the Adopt-a-Senior program.
