An employee of Anderson Meals on Wheels and I have become friends through another family member. Having learned and watched the amount of time & work that she gives to this program is amazing and very rewarding to my heart. It is her love for others, to go above and beyond her call of duty, many times, because she is decided to serving the clients as if each and every one is the only one she & her staff are preparing a meal for. The personal touch from Jeanie Cochran is unbelievable for the large amount of homebound requiring a hot meal. Meals on Wheels-Anderson is a well greased wheel that keeps on running, getting those meals out to the ones in need.
Meals on Wheels serves a huge need in our community! Without the influence of Meals on Wheels there are many folks that would go days without meals. Meals on Wheels also does a great job of engaging the community with their great fundraisers. These allow everyone to participate in the positive influence of Meals on Wheels! They have a very organized staff and a large group of volunteers and make a very positive impact in our hometown community!
