Outside the Council on Aging’s office is a newly completed tiny house that COA hopes to transform into thousands of Meals on Wheels for home-bound seniors by selling raffle tickets to win the 191-square-foot tiny house and using the proceeds from the raffle to help fund COA’s Meals on Wheels program. And that’s where altruistic tiny house enthusiasts can help out.
Tiny living has become a cross-country craze that has spawned TV shows, given birth to hundreds of blogs, and created all manner of products suitable for tiny spaces.
But while we hope you’ll indulge your tiny living fantasies by buying multiple tickets, we also hope you’ll think of your ticket purchase as a generous donation to a very worthy cause: feeding seniors who can no longer cook for themselves or drive to a store to purchase food.
Without a steady source of nutritional meals, these seniors become more vulnerable to health conditions that will further limit their mobility and independence. With meal support, they have a better chance of continuing to live successfully in their own homes.
For every $10,000 in revenue realized from sale of raffle tickets, we can provide 2,500 meals for food-insecure seniors. So invest in the potential to create your own scaled-down, cost- and eco-conscious future in a tiny house, while investing in the future health and well-being of seniors.We invite you to come by the COA office at 30 Kawana Springs Road in Santa Rosa, Monday through Thursday, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, or Friday, from 9:30 am to 3 pm, to tour the tiny house.
