I coordinate our company's volunteer schedule and have been involved with Meals on Wheels many times over the years. They provide a wonderful service to delivery meals to homebound and elderly individuals. They organize this service for thousands every day and do so with compassion. It is a wonderful organization and I'm so honored to have been associated with it!

I am self employed but volunteered 1 1/2 years ago to be a substitute driver. I have been so impressed with the organization and the service, second to none that I have ever been involved with. But, the best part is the clients. They are all grateful for MOW, but more importantly they inspire me. Many have special needs but face life with a determination that I am not sure I would have in their circumstances. Many have told me that MOW Tarrant County helps them keep that determination.

I have been delivering meals through Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County for several years now. It is one of the most gratifying recurring experiences of my life and, more importantly, helps address an urgent need for folks who have so many challenges. The basic need for food is, obviously, addressed. Beyond that, though, people who can easily be (and feel) neglected and forgotten by our society are cared for in a very direct and personal way. Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County is providing a crucial service and is doing so with compassion and excellence.

When my youngest went to school, I started volunteering for Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County. I took my children with me during the summers. They were so taken by the clients that they would ask about them when school started. I begin to work for Meals, had to take a leave, and a few years later came back. I now take care of Client Services and don't know where to begin. We have painted homes, repaired roofs, put in smoke alarms, installed convertor boxes, given out toliet raisers, rollators, wheelchairs, hospital beds, canes, shower chairs, walkers, have a food pantry, help feed pets, help sick pets, help neuter pets, help with transportation, have a program for volunteers to make weekly visits and run errands, and have even replaced water heaters. Can you believe that there's more? There is - one client, 82 years old, needed a light replaced in her hallway. My volunteer was there that day. Another had his mailbox knocked down. My volunteer not only fixed it for him, but gave him his number and told him to call any time. During this holiday season, if you feel down on mankind, help out with Meals On Wheels. It will change your life. People who need help ARE helped. It can be the smallest of projects, but can make a world of difference to our client. Volunteers start out to help others, they stay because it makes THEM feel good.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the smiles on the faces of our clients AND our volunteers. How can anyone bet that!!!

When I made the decision to volunteer for meals on wheels I was nervous about finding the addresses. But they have all the tools you need and my team and I have a great time taking turns delivering the meals. It truly gives me a sense of accomplishment knowing that I have helped. I'm sure our visit may be the only contact some of the people have and I enjoy being there for them.

As a volunteer with Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County I have been impressed with every aspect of the organization. The staff within their main office is friendly and organized. The delivery volunteers are equipped with training and are screened for suitability. The routes are mapped out with helpful detailing. The privacy of their clients is well protected. The meals seem to be very healthy, balanced and well proportioned. The clients appear to greatly benefit from these aspects of the meals as well as their regular delivery. The organization regularly expresses appreciation to its volunteers.

I fill in when needed. I was called one morning to do a last minute fill in and, of course, this time of year there's so much to do and my schedule was full but I hesitantly said okay. When I got to my pick up, I had 11 stops, a record for me, and I thought, "This is going to take forever." As I slowly covered the route, not knowing my stops or locations, I arrived at an elderly lady's apartment and she asked me to shut the door. I tried to explain to her I was running late with many stops left and reluctantly shut the door. She proceeded to hand me a beautiful angel she had knitted and told me to look up. The room was dark, with her shades shut to her sliding glass door with a CD slipped under the curtain where the sun reflected. She said, "Do you see my rainbow? You are my angel for today! Thank you for bringing me my dinner." My special angel hangs in my kitchen/family room so I can see it daily and reminded that a little time and kindness is priceless to one that waits daily to share her rainbow and an angel made with love. By giving our time we receive so much more! Kathy

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

touch a lot more lives because so many routes are needed but not enough volunteers so maybe if they could pay for some that can't do it for free.

For the past 18 months, I (along with a co-worker) deliver Meals on Wheels on Fridays to clients in East Fort Worth. Leaving the office, stopping by to pick up the meals, and delivering to 10 or so clients and returning to the office takes just a little over an hour. In that hour, we have an opportunity to bring a hot meal to those who would not otherwise receive one, a chance to visit with a co-worker that in the normal course of business we may not be able to do, and the opportunity to receive many kind and appreciative words from the clients. I can always count on hearing "God Bless You" every Friday. What an easy way to make a difference in someone's life and enjoy time with a co-worker. My company has a strong commitment to being good citizens in our community. Partnering with Meals on Wheels allows that to happen. Meals on Wheels not only supplies its clients with noon meal delivery, but also provides breakfast and weekend meals to qualified clients along with a laundry list of other client services. This organization runs on a lean budget and uses its funding to get the most "bang for the buck". Month after month, I continue to be impressed at how far MOW can stretch its dollars and how many people in Tarrant County they are able to help. Way to go, Meals on Wheels!!!

I am grateful for Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County because the people there are so caring and helpful to those of us who volunteer to deliver. They are competent, patient, and always follow through when it is necessary to make changes. We are all blessed to have MOW for people in Tarrant County who need them.

I've been volunteering for Meals on Wheels for over a year now. I'm so glad to be part of this wonderful organization and to be able to help those in my community who aren't able to provide themselves with a hot, nutrious meal everyday. Meals on Wheels not only provides hot, nutritous meals but they do so with a warm and caring heart.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
