Medical alert company partners with Meals on Wheels.
Williamsport, PA Alert1 announced today that during the months of November and December, the team donated a portion of proceeds and provided hundreds of meals in collaboration with the Success Through Engagement & Partnership (STEP) Office of Aging and Meals on Wheels in Williamsport.
STEP engages individuals, families and communities in strategies for their own social and economic success via partnerships with the community. The Meals On Wheels Association of America is the oldest and largest national organization serving the needs of senior hunger and delivers over a million meals per day to seniors in need.

In addition to providing for the safety and independence of retired people, Alert1 is committed to combating other issues seniors face.
