Meals on Wheels is a wonderful organization. The individuals involved and volunteers not only provide meals for the elderly, disabled and others in need who cannot prepare meals for themselves, they also provide companionship. At times, Meals on Wheels has also found individuals who have fallen or otherwise became ill and were able to call for help. Meals on Wheels is an invaluable asset to the community.

Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County is an extraordinary organization. The small staff of 6 full time individuals are extremely hard working and passionate about fulfilling their mission of providing meals to homebound adults within the community we live. With servicing over 400 clients per day, the organization is efficient and well organized and most importantly commited to the well-being of our seniors.

It only takes a minute in the presence of the staff and board of Meals on Wheels of Lehigh County to feel the passion and commitment to serve their clients. I had the opportunity to deliver Christmas Trees and gifts this past holiday season and the warmth and appreciation of the recipients was overwhelming. Meals on Wheels truly makes a difference in the lives of their clients and volunteers. I am honored to be a part of this organization.

I recently joined the board this year, and I have nothing but amazing experiences to share. The entire staff is absolutely fantastic. Everyone is extremely friendly, dedicated, and passionate about what they do. I did my first delivery route yesterday and words cannot even begin to describe my experience. I met many of the "regular" volunteers and they were so welcoming. I was impressed that almost everyone commented about how wonderful the staff at MOW of LC was to work with. Working with this organization is a retreat, a breath of fresh air, from my career - and I LOVE what I do.

I have been on the board for three years now and the experience has not only been personally wonderful but also educational. This is my first time volunteering on a board and to be able to work with such dedicated passionate personnel, wonderful volunteers and committed board members has made the experience so inspirational. Pam Bechtel and Michele Grasso pour their heart and soul into this organization to make it the success it is. We are dedicated to our clients and the mission to delivering nutritious meals to keep those who want to be independent but homebound happy and healthy.

I'm very proud to serve on this board and be a part of such a wonderful stable successful organization!
