I started as a volunteer 14 years ago and became so devoted to the organization that I became a board member. Volunteering for MOWW was the most fulfilling thing I had ever done in my life. The impact I made from sharing a few minutes with a homebound person gave me goosebumps on a regular basis. I am now enjoying running the pet program which started with a grant from Miss Lilly's Trading Company. It pays for specialty food and some vet care such as flee medication and check ups. We also get a generous amount of food donated from Centinela Feed and the pets seem to love their Lotus brand food.
This organization is amazing!! Seeing the smiles on the seniors' faces...Priceless!!! The staff is incredible. I recommend volunteering at this event 100 times over!!
It has been my honor to be a part of this wonderful organization. I have been a fundraiser and board member for several years now and the assistance we offer to our clients is so appreciated and necessary. When you see the happy smiles on our clients as we deliver their meals and add companionship to what can be a lonely day, nothing is more satisfying. The organization is run with wonderful, caring staff who always put the client's needs first. I am very proud to be affiliated with Meals On Wheels and will continue to do so into the future.
By supplying nutritional needs of partner Meals-On-Wheels enabled me to care for him at home and continue working. Excellent organization.
Meals on Wheels is a wonderful organization. The volunteers make such a positive difference in the lives of the clients. It is about much more than providing a hot nutritious meal - it is about providing a friendly supportive human contact. i have had the pleasure and privilege of going on volunteer meal deliveries and I have seen first hand how much the clients appreciate the food and the visit.
