We may not be serving food this Christmas, but we’re hoping to help thousands receive a hot meal in December.
To this end, we’re working with Meals on Wheels and sponsoring meal deliveries across Lethbridge. With your help, we hope to make this holiday season merrier for people in our community.
The Water Tower x Meals on Wheels x You
Our push to feed people in need around Lethbridge ends with Meals on Wheels volunteers delivering food, but it starts with you.
When you buy a gift card worth $20 or more (for a friend, a client, an employee – or just for you!) we are pledging to pay it forward by sponsoring one Meals on Wheels meal.
Over the course of this month, and with your help, we hope to sponsor 2000 meals – giving those most vulnerable (like those who don’t have the ability to shop, cook on their own, or have someone close who can help) a hot meal they can enjoy during these cold, Lethbridge winter days.
Who is Meals on Wheels?
Meals on Wheels is a charity organization that brings hot meals to those who can’t cook for themselves.
This can include people who are:
The volunteers at Meals on Wheels prepare food throughout the year, then deliver it to these folks’ doorsteps. While the food they prepare and deliver is important, especially for those who would go hungry otherwise, it’s not the only thing they deliver. For many who receive meals, human connection is just as important.
Many who sign up for Meals on Wheels are not able to easily leave their home, whether because of physical or mental issues. This leaves them cooped up inside, all alone.
Because they deliver door to door, Meals on Wheels volunteers are just as often delivering the joy of human connection, which is doubly important during the holiday season – and especially this year.
This double-benefit to those who often can’t leave their home on their own is why The Water Tower has chosen to support their organization this holiday season.

The support the Lethbridge community has shown us from the very beginning and through this pandemic has been heartwarming. It’s kept our doors open, and our staff busy at work.
For that, we’ll be forever thankful!
But, at the Water Tower #supportlocal means more than shopping in the city. We believe that in this time of need it’s important for us as a business to support our local community as well. That’s why we’re taking this step.
This is the amazing part of supporting local. As you support us, we support others – whether it’s through our employees and management staff buying their gifts from local companies, or by giving back to local charities that make lives better right here in Lethbridge.
We hope that as a community, we can all continue to support local and change lives for the better in our community.
From all of us at The Water Tower, we wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family!
