Volunteering Oportunities

Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Food, Meals on Wheels

Mission: Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson & Ellis Counties serves the children of yesterday by helping needy homebound elderly and disabled people remain independent and healthy in their homes by providing home-delivered meals, daily personal contact, and support for individuals and their families.

Results: We help over 2,800 individuals each year remain independent and healthy. Over 500 volunteers help us deliver meals and so much more to their elderly and disabled neighbors in need.

Programs: Needs being addressed by Meals-on-Wheels of Johnson & Ellis Counties are hunger, malnutrition, isolation, access to community resources, and the inability to maintain home setting. MOWJEC provides home delivered meals delivered by volunteers to frail, isolated elderly and disabled persons who cannot adequately prepare meals for themselves. MOWJEC now serves over 600 persons a day in both Johnson and Ellis Counties. The agency continues to grow with the help of local and community support,in spite of significant financial losses from federal and state budget cuts.

There is not another organization that touches the lives of seniors everyday! Meals on Wheels is a daily and vital part of over 700 clients. So many seniors would be without human contact if it weren't for Meals on Wheels and the many volunteers. The director and staff are incredible and I am proud to be affiliated with them.

This wonderful organization does exactly what it says, delivering much needed meals and just as important, a smiling face with the meal to those in need. Meals on Wheels has the highest care and concern for the Elderly and runs their organization with professionalism. I am blessed and consider it a privilege to be a part of that!

I have given to the Johnson County Meals on Wheels since not long after moving to the Burleson area. The work they do in providing much needed meals to the elderly and disabled folks and also, maybe just as important, the daily personal contact the recipients receive is invaluable! Some years ago I assisted in deliveries in another County and saw first hand what this means to the people we served. I consider it a great privilege to be a part of this most wonderful organization and encourage all to give to the Johnson County Meals on Wheels organization.

Meals on Wheels of Johnson and Ellis County is an organization that I have been involved with since 2005 as a volunteer then eventually as a Board Member. MOWJEC is a professional organization utilizing its resources in the most conservative compassionate manner possible. Our clients deserve the best in services and I believe our competent staff are some of the best in the Country.

I have volunteered delivering meals to the elderly. They stress the importance of making sure the mow recipients are doing well, not just with food, but physically and emotionally. They are wonderful and are dedicated to the well being of all of their clients. It is easy to sign up and they are so appreciative of any help they get. Sometimes I am only able to help once a month, but they accept all help no matter how often.
