I volunteer with my 3 year old son, and it is a GREAT way for us to do something that makes an impact together. He is learning so much about sharing and giving. That makes it all the more valuable to our family! Thank you Meals on Wheels for doing a great service in our community.
Review from Guidestar
I am always amazed by the level of energy and excitement I see when I walk in the Doors of Meals on Wheels Ministry, Inc. My wife and I also volunteer to deliver meals to a few of the 3,500 clients who receive a meal from our service every day, and are truly blessed that we get to share in the joy and comfort those folks receive when they are greeted by the volunteer drivers delivering a nutritious meal and encouragement to their doorstep daily. This is an organization that has met fiscal challenges head on, working on creative ways to raise funding, from using their kitchens and expert staff to prepare meals for catered events throughout the area to looking at every possible means to make your dollars stretch farther and farther every year. Truly a wonderful organization and group of people.
I am proud to say that I am a 2 year board member of the Meals on Wheels Ministry, Inc. located in Tyler, Texas. This ministry serves 3,500 nutritious hot meals to senior citizens and disabled citizens in a five county area in East Texas. The staff and volunteers are absolutely dedicated to their clients. Serving on the finance committee for Meals on Wheels Ministry, Inc. has opened my eyes to the stressful financial challenges we face every year. Slashed governmental budgets have really taken a toll on finances and we are doing everything we possibly can to not cut services to our clients!
