Give to Lincoln Day

Give to Lincoln Day

Give to Lincoln Day is Wednesday, May 24, 2023

Give to Lincoln Day is a 24-hour event in which every donation gets a proportional share of a $500,000 match fund made possible by Lincoln Community Foundation and generous sponsors. Gifts made between May 1 and May 24 count toward the match.


For 56 years, Tabitha Meals on Wheels has delivered a daily meal and vital well-being check, a blessing to some of the most vulnerable in our community—82% of whom report that a volunteer is the only person they see each day. The first and only program of its kind in Lincoln is possible thanks to generous donors and dedicated volunteers.


  • 500 Lincoln residents rely daily on this vital service
  • 1,000 dedicated volunteers
  • 45+ routes each day
  • 5 million+ meals served to date
  • 365 days a year
  • 0 requests turned away, regardless of ability to pay


Deliveries come at a great cost—in 2023, Tabitha must supplement $800,000 and dedicate valuable workforce hours to cover the funding of this program. An eye-opening 81% of recipients cannot afford to pay for their meals, and 90% say the meal allows them to remain at home.

Give older adults a way to stay safe and independent in their homes through your donation to Tabitha Meals on Wheels.
