The donation will help Meals on Wheels Summerville deliver over 800 hot, nutritious meals per week to 180 homebound people in the community.

“BJ’s is committed to helping families meet basic needs, such as access to quality food and wellness, which is why we’re proud to support Meals on Wheels Summerville,” said Dawn Albright, general manager of BJ’s Wholesale Club in Summerville. “Together, we can bring a fresh approach to nourishing our communities and improving the quality of life for our homebound neighbors.”
