Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County
December 17, 2009

For the past 18 months, I (along with a co-worker) deliver Meals on Wheels on Fridays to clients in East Fort Worth. Leaving the office, stopping by to pick up the meals, and delivering to 10 or so clients and returning to the office takes just a little over an hour. In that hour, we have an opportunity to bring a hot meal to those who would not otherwise receive one, a chance to visit with a co-worker that in the normal course of business we may not be able to do, and the opportunity to receive many kind and appreciative words from the clients. I can always count on hearing "God Bless You" every Friday. What an easy way to make a difference in someone's life and enjoy time with a co-worker. My company has a strong commitment to being good citizens in our community. Partnering with Meals on Wheels allows that to happen. Meals on Wheels not only supplies its clients with noon meal delivery, but also provides breakfast and weekend meals to qualified clients along with a laundry list of other client services. This organization runs on a lean budget and uses its funding to get the most "bang for the buck". Month after month, I continue to be impressed at how far MOW can stretch its dollars and how many people in Tarrant County they are able to help. Way to go, Meals on Wheels!!!

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

Feed the hungry of Tarrant County for many years to come and build new headquarters. These incredible folks desire better a better working environment.
