Meals On Wheels, Inc. of Tarrant County
December 17, 2009
I fill in when needed. I was called one morning to do a last minute fill in and, of course, this time of year there's so much to do and my schedule was full but I hesitantly said okay. When I got to my pick up, I had 11 stops, a record for me, and I thought, "This is going to take forever." As I slowly covered the route, not knowing my stops or locations, I arrived at an elderly lady's apartment and she asked me to shut the door. I tried to explain to her I was running late with many stops left and reluctantly shut the door. She proceeded to hand me a beautiful angel she had knitted and told me to look up. The room was dark, with her shades shut to her sliding glass door with a CD slipped under the curtain where the sun reflected. She said, "Do you see my rainbow? You are my angel for today! Thank you for bringing me my dinner." My special angel hangs in my kitchen/family room so I can see it daily and reminded that a little time and kindness is priceless to one that waits daily to share her rainbow and an angel made with love. By giving our time we receive so much more! Kathy
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
delivering meals to the homebound.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
meeting the receivers of the meals.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
touch a lot more lives because so many routes are needed but not enough volunteers so maybe if they could pay for some that can't do it for free.
