If you receive a letter in the mail from “Meals on Wheels,” be sure to check the address. Likely, the letter is from a “Meals on Wheels” organization located out of state. If the letter asks for a money donation, don’t be fooled into thinking your donation will benefit home-delivered meals of Fulton County Senior Center.
Do not provide your personal information to charities. Be certain you understand to whom you are donating money. The Fulton Center Senior Center will never send you a letter asking for money.
Additionally, if you choose to submit a donation to cover the meals you receive from the Fulton County Senior Center, please make your check payable to Fulton County Senior Center and mail to 240 Clinton Street, Wauseon, OH, 43567.
Call us at 419-337-9299 if you receive a confusing donation request and have questions. We’re happy to help!
Did you know you can add emergency contact information to your driving record? You can have phone numbers on file for law enforcement officials to use if you are involved in an auto collision or another emergency situation.

Please be aware of FALSE information in an advertisement that is trying to scam seniors. A social media post announced that people with no DUIs can receive money back by entering their zip code to a website.
The Facebook post included a quote, “Drivers with no DUIs are getting up to $610 back in savings. I simply entered my zip and got $610 back just for having a good record.”
The post showed two pictures of people holding checks for $610 along with a link to a website that proclaimed, “All 50 States Approve $610 in Savings for US Drivers with No DUIs.” The post told people to “check eligibility” at a link on the site. THIS IS FALSE INFORMATION
Truth: Some DMVs have access to drivers’ records; however, they are not giving money away.
Truth: Experts with the American Property Casualty Insurance Association said they are unaware of any such program. Source: Politifact, the Poynter Institute.
Truth: Clicking on links in ads may take you to a website that asks you to input your personal and financial information, which can lead to ripping you off.
Truth: Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
If you have questions about potential money-back programs, feel free to ask us at the Fulton County Senior Center. We are happy to help you discern between truth and scams.
