WASI Loses Board Member Wanda Murphy
WASI is mourning the loss of our long-time volunteer, supporter, Board Member and friend, Wanda Murphy. Wanda passed away Monday, March 13 at her residence at the WASI campus, surrounded by her family. For years, Wanda’s presence at the Wasilla Senior Center was a constant reminder of her heart for serving others. She was the devoted “Lunch Counter Lady” who welcomed Seniors to the dining room each day. She also served multiple terms as Director on WASI’s Board, and currently occupied a seat expiring next October.
Wanda was remembered at a special service on Friday, March 17 at WASI.
Walmart Supports Wasilla Seniors with $55,000 for Meals on Wheels
We are happy to announce a presentation of a $55,000 donation from Walmart to our Meals on Wheels program, delivering to the aging and elderly in the Mat-Su Valley.
This is the second year in a row Walmart has given us this extraordinary support to help feed seniors who are homebound, and might otherwise go hungry. WASI will serve over 110,000 meals to seniors this year, more than ever before, and government funding is decreasing. Walmart has stepped in to help fill the gap and make sure no senior who needs Meals on Wheels is turned away. From all of us here at WASI, thank you Walmart!

All WASI members are encouraged to brave the cold and meet together at 12:30 pm on Tuesday, April 18th.
Come for lunch at 11:30 am and plan to stay after for an informative meeting.
