Groupon is a website that features daily deals on local goods, services, and cultural events in more than 46 countries. Grassroots is an outreach initiative within Groupon that brings communities together to do good, have fun, and make an impact.
We will need your help to make this a successful campaign:
1. Subscribe to Groupon in Fort Worth before Thursday, July 11. (If you are already a Fort Worth subscriber, you can skip this step.)
2. Read your daily Groupon e-mail or the local Groupon website to view our campaign Thursday, July 11, through Wednesday, July 17. We also will be reminding you about the campaign on this blog, on our website, and on Facebook and Twitter.
3. Be the first to fund home-delivered meals and then encourage your friends and family to do the same.
Thank you for your support!
Did you know you can donate to Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County just by having an unwanted vehicle? Through the Meals on Wheels Association of America and Melwood, you can easily donate the car, truck, boat, or RV you no longer want — and it doesn’t even have to run!
It’s so easy that one of our case managers donated a working vehicle. The car was one she no longer needed; she said she wanted to “be able to bless someone else.” All she did was fill out a form at mowaa.org/donatemycar (you may also call 1-888-MOWKAR1), and the vehicle was scheduled for pick up. Towing a vehicle that does not run is even free!
Please select “TX Meals On Wheels of Tarrant County” as the program you would like the proceeds to benefit. Vehicle donations are tax-deductible. To read more about this program, please visit our website.
