After you finish off that bottle of wine what do you do with the cork? Toss it? Save it for an art project? How about using your used corks to help your community and Meals on Wheels?
With wine being such a big part of holiday entertaining, Gallo Family
Vineyards offers an easy way to give back to the community by helping
Meals On Wheels Association of America with its goal to end
senior hunger. For the 4th year in a row, the Gallo
Family Vineyards® Every Cork Counts™ campaign makes giving back as easy
as uncorking a bottle of one of its 16 great-tasting, affordable wines.
For every Gallo Family Vineyards cork collected through December 31, 2013,
Gallo Family Vineyards will donate $5 to Meals On Wheels with a maximum
donation of $100,000. Additionally, fans of the winery can raise
another $10,000 with a fun online game at www.EveryCorkCounts.com.
an army of nearly two million volunteers who work in their Senior
Nutrition Programs, the organization is able to deliver one million
meals a day to help combat the more than 8.8 million seniors who face
the threat of hunger.
Over the past three years, Gallo Family Vineyards has collected
thousands of corks and donated more than $225,000 to support the needs
of seniors in communities across the country.
