To help raise awareness of its programs and to gain new clients and volunteers, Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County has launched a new branding effort complete with a fresh logo, website and social media (Facebook and Twitter) accounts.
“It was important that our new branding evoke a sense of movement and reflect the fact that we’re driving compassion as we move the organization forward,” said Beth Gehlhausen, executive director of Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County.
To see the new campaign, visit www.mealsonwheelshc.org. Residents now can also follow the organization on Twitter: @HCmealsonwheels, and “like” Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County, Inc. at www.facebook.com/mealsonwheelshc .
Helping to guide the organization through its new branding efforts will be Westfield’s Jesse Pohlman, who has been named the new president of the Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County board of directors. Other new executive members appointed to the board include vice president Lindsay Sweet of First Merchant’s Bank, secretary Rosalyn Demaree of Indiana Artisans and treasurer Bryan Miller of Star Bank. Each board member will serve a three-year term.
Meals on Wheels of Hamilton County provides meal delivery to elderly, disabled and homebound residents, regardless of age or income, helping to reduce hunger, improve health and promote independence. Its primary goal is to help its clients live independently for as long as possible.
