Meals on Wheels provides a great opportunity to provide a significant service to homebound individuals in need of a meal. The service mission is uncomplicated and clear and the payback to a volunteer is immediate - face to face contact with clients who are so appreciative of the service. Organizational overhead is minimal - volunteers provide the "nuts and bolts" of the service plan. Site volunteers organize and package the meals for pickup. Delivery volunteers pick up the meals and deliver them directly to clients in their homes. Meals on Wheels provides an essential, core service.

The Great!

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

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the seamless organization of the delivery process, the personal interaction with the Meals on Wheels staff and direct contact with clients.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

upbeat and enthusiastic about their efforts.

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

continue to expand it's reach to homebound people who are unable to prepare their own meals and ensure that other components, such as breakfast meals, are provided reguarly.

This is my second time to volunteer for MOW. While living in Sherman several years ago, I delivered meals on my lunch hour. Today, I am retired and wanted to give back to my community. I have been delivering in this area for two years. I also run errands and do small tasks for any of my clients who have needs. This is also volunteer time. My grandsons love to help me deliver when they are in town. The clients love interaction with children. This year I have a partner and along with meals, we also deliver hugs to those who need them. It has been a wonderful experience, and I am very blessed by their smiles and gratitude.

The Great!

Meals on Wheels of Tarrant County is a very efficiently run and service oriented organization. There are many long-term, dedicated staff members, board members and donors and volunteers. They not only provide nutritious meals for clients, they make sure their basic human needs are met. For instance, they distribute heaters in the cold weather and fans in the hot summer. They provide transportation services on a case by case basis, as needed. They coordinate other human service agencies with clients as specific needs are identified. Great team and I am proud and honored to be a part of it!

I love this organization. I volunteered and delivered meals for 3 years. I found the clients warm, appreciative, and it gave me a new awareness and perspective of our older neighbors in our community which I have carried with me for years after this volunteering experience. The only reason I stopped is I accepted a new job which did not allow me the flex-time during weekdays to deliver meals. I miss volunteering with this organization very much.

Always very pleasant.

You would need only an hour to deliver hot lunches and friendly human contact to homebound elderly and disabled people along a route near your home or office. In three hours, you could mow a client's lawn or do some minor landscaping, install a shower grab bar or window-unit A/C for a client, or be creative and make birthday cards for our clients. Volunteer
