Meals on Wheels of Grenville fulfills an extremely important mission (providing hot, nutritious meals and personal contact) to homebound individuals in Greenville County, SC. And it does so in a very efficient manner. There is a high level of client satisfaction, as proven by surveys. I have personally been involved with the organization for four years, and for the last two years as a board member. The board is well managed and consists of talented, caring, community leaders. The executive director constantly stives to make efficient and effective use of board time, volunteer time, and donor resources. I have delivered meals on a regular basis. I have helped with "holiday gift bags" for the clients. I have spent a significant amount of time with the internal staff, and can give this my full support and approval as a top-notch non profit organization. Truly world class. A benchmark not only in the Meals on Wheels organization, but also a great model for non profit leadership across the industry.
Meals on Wheels of Greenville is an outstanding organization because of its people. Every person involved with the organization - volunteers, staff, and board - are committed to the mission which enhances the quality of life of homebound individuals by providing nutritious meals, personal contact and related services. It is a honor to serve as a board member and watch this organization prosper. I own a senior resource guide that covers the Upstate of SC and often get phone calls from seniors in need. Anytime that I have called Meals on Wheels to get their assistance for a senior they have responded immediately and professionally.
Meals On Wheels of Greenville has been operating in the community since 1968 and has served over 9,000,000 meals during that period of time. Without Meals On Wheels, many individuals would not receive a meal, and in our society today that is unthinkable. I have personally witnessed the dozens of volunteers that arrive each day to prepare and package the meals and the hundreds of volunteers that selfishly deliver over 1500 meals daily. The staff and management of Meals On Wheels do an excellent job of running the organization keeping the focus on eliminating senior hunger. Even in these difficult economic times, Meals On Wheels of Greenville continues to provide meals to a growing segment of our population.
