I have been involved with Meals on Wheels for many years helping with their direct mail fund raising efforts. I work with many non profits in the area, but Meals on Wheels is my personal favorite. It is a very professional organization that performs a service which is greatly needed in the community. The people working for MOW are dedicated and have a very strong belief in what they do as well as an honest desire to help!
