On Tuesday December 20 the Cheyenne Lowe's Distribution Center in Cheyenne delivered 50 gifts for local Meals on Wheels clients.

That's according to a news release from Meals on Wheels.

The gift delivery process got underway early this month when Meals on Wheels contacted 50 randomly chosen clients, asking them their pant, shirt and shoe size as well as something they wanted and something they needed.

That list was then given to the Lowe's Distribution Center.

Over the past month Lowe's employees bought the gifts and wrapped them up in wrapping paper and bows. According to the release:

“As a company, Lowe’s believes we have a responsibility to not only customers but the communities we serve to make their homes, neighborhoods and environments better,” stated Lowe’s Distribution Center General Manager Allen Harolle. “At the distribution center here in Cheyenne, our associates take that responsibility seriously throughout the year by volunteering and supporting numerous community projects; but especially during the holidays the selfless nature of our team shines.  We often say, “We do more than just move boxes here,” and partnerships with organizations such as Meals on Wheels allows both Lowe’s and our associates to spread hope and cheer throughout our community during the holiday season.”

Meals on Wheels Staff and volunteers, dressed up as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus and elves delivered the gifts on Dec. 21.

Then on Thursday, Dec. 22, almost 2000 meals went out to Meals on Wheels clients despite dangerous, life threatening wind chills. “We are so grateful to have dedicated volunteers who braved the cold weather today to ensure the clients of Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne had their weekend and special holiday meals, we could not do it without them,” stated Stephanie Freeman, Executive Director of Meals on Wheels of Cheyenne.
