I am currently an active volunteer with Meals on Wheels and a Board member. I am so thankful that an organization like Meals on Wheels exist in my community. The stellar quality of the volunteer program and the wonderful community experience I encounter every time I serve on the meal delivery route is such a blessing to me. As a Board Member I know that this organziation values my time and utilizes my gifts to improve and sustain the mission and operations of Meals on Wheels. The Meals on Wheels staff are so talented and dedicated to each client; they work as a strong team to meet the needs of the clients and communicates with the volutneers, community leaders and the families within our community.

The Great!

I currently serve as a meal delivery route volunteer from my work place site. To meet and hear the clients share how thankful they are for the support from Meals on Wheels and the hot delicious meal that is hand delivered with a bit of conversation is so touching; I feel that my volunteer time is making a difference in the life of another community resident.

Find ways to support the need of a larger kitchen to operate in and sustain a garden plot for the organization to have free fresh vegetables to be able to deliver (in the appropriate season) with the meals to the clients.

Meals on Wheels of Grenville fulfills an extremely important mission (providing hot, nutritious meals and personal contact) to homebound individuals in Greenville County, SC. And it does so in a very efficient manner. There is a high level of client satisfaction, as proven by surveys. I have personally been involved with the organization for four years, and for the last two years as a board member. The board is well managed and consists of talented, caring, community leaders. The executive director constantly stives to make efficient and effective use of board time, volunteer time, and donor resources. I have delivered meals on a regular basis. I have helped with "holiday gift bags" for the clients. I have spent a significant amount of time with the internal staff, and can give this my full support and approval as a top-notch non profit organization. Truly world class. A benchmark not only in the Meals on Wheels organization, but also a great model for non profit leadership across the industry.

I have personlly observed the results of this organization in its impact to the community. Over 1300 homebound individuals in Greenville County receive a hot, nutritious meal delivered by a friendly volunteer on a daily basis. This could not happen without the deidcation and talent and efficiency of Meals on Wheels Greenville.

Meals on Wheels Greenville has recently undertaken an extensive re-evaluation of business processes, and created an updated strategic plan based upon the balanced scorecard model. Major work process areas are currently being analyzed to develop actional goals / key performance indicators, and measures to meet those goals. This is a dynamic organization that is already good, and striving to be great.

Meals on Wheels of Greenville is an outstanding organization because of its people. Every person involved with the organization - volunteers, staff, and board - are committed to the mission which enhances the quality of life of homebound individuals by providing nutritious meals, personal contact and related services. It is a honor to serve as a board member and watch this organization prosper. I own a senior resource guide that covers the Upstate of SC and often get phone calls from seniors in need. Anytime that I have called Meals on Wheels to get their assistance for a senior they have responded immediately and professionally.

Meals On Wheels of Greenville has been operating in the community since 1968 and has served over 9,000,000 meals during that period of time. Without Meals On Wheels, many individuals would not receive a meal, and in our society today that is unthinkable. I have personally witnessed the dozens of volunteers that arrive each day to prepare and package the meals and the hundreds of volunteers that selfishly deliver over 1500 meals daily. The staff and management of Meals On Wheels do an excellent job of running the organization keeping the focus on eliminating senior hunger. Even in these difficult economic times, Meals On Wheels of Greenville continues to provide meals to a growing segment of our population.

The Great!
