Meals On Wheels West
November 4, 2010
I have been both a volunteer and a donor to Meals-on-wheels for 15 years. The people I come in contact with weekly are so appreciative of the meals they receive as well as the interaction with caring volunteers.
Meals-on-wheels has a supportive staff that makes sure the client's needs are met professionally and with great concern for their well-being. This is an established organization that is run well and really works to the advantage of everybody involved.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
The majority of the clients that receive meals-on-wheels are nearing the end of their lives. We make sure they are well fed and given a daily friend with whom to visit. They are able to be in their own homes and maintain their dignity by feeling worthy of this valuable service.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
More private donors so the food quality is increased.
Volunteer & Deliver both hot and cold meals to people unable to feed themselves weekly for 15 years.
