The American big heart.

A Catholic Services worker prepares "meals on wheels" lunch delivery on March 12, 2014 in Franklin, New Jersey. This year's harsh winter has left many seniors isolated in their homes due to heavy snow. The "meals on wheels" program in Sussex County, run by Catholic Charities, serves elderly, ill and at-risk citizens citizens hot food 5 days a week.

Meals on Wheels received 50 times the typical amount of daily donations on Thursday after the White House proposed cuts to some of the program’s sources of funding, a spokesperson for the group said.

Bertolette said the support to the national Meals on Wheels office has been “amazing” and “very overwhelming.”

She said local programs raise funds individually, but she theorized that “there was likely a groundswell of local support, as well.”

I told you. People will step up. They want to volunteer. When it's all over MOW will have more money and more volunteer.

1. It would be great if so many donated that Meals on Wheels took in enough to replace what it had been

getting from the federal government.
